Learn how to make this simple Galician Almejas a la Marinera recipe
This recipe is not to be confused with ‘Clams in Salsa Verde’ which is a Basque dish made with fresh clams cooked in a green sauce made out of garlic, fish stock and chopped parsley. Marinera sauce is a red sauce made with fresh tomatoes, paprika, onion, garlic and white wine. This recipe comes from Galicia, particularly from the area of Rias Baixas where the famous Albariño white wine is made.
