Ingredients

Directions

In a large stock pot over high heat, combine clams, wine, mirin, ouzo, lemon zest and juice, saffron, roasted shallots, and garlic. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook until the clams just begin to open, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the butter and continue cooking until the clams have opened completely, about 4 minutes longer. Discard any unopened clams. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve the clams and cooking liquid in large pasta bowls. Serve warm.
