“For the Clam and Chorizo lovers, this is a easy dish, full of flavor. I made it a few years back and let me say, using some crusty bread to soak up this sauce is a must! Make it a Romantic dish or serve to your party guests. It is sure to please! I got this recipe from a 2006 Canadian Living magazine, and I forgot all about it, until I went through my cookbooks. This can be served as a appetizer as well. Please enjoy :)”
