I LOVE this recipe. The flavoured ham oil coats the clams beautifully and acts as a seasoning agent, whilst the fino sherry brings the whole dish to life. I love cooking with sherry and this is a simple example of how well sherry tastes in sauces. You can use dark sherries such as amontillado and oloroso on roasted meats, dark gravy sauces and marinades whilst fino and manzanilla sherries work well with seafood and creamy sauces. The creamy but full bodied flavour from the fino sherry, contrasts incredibly well with the sweet clams and salty iberico ham. An easy tapas dish, that looks good and tastes better.
