Manila Clams with Green Garlic Broth and Black Trumpet Mushrooms
Chef Phil West of Range – San Francisco, CA
Adapted by StarChefs.com
April 2007

Yield: 4 servings

Manila Clams with Green Garlic Broth and Black Trumpet Mushrooms Ingredients:

    Green Garlic Broth:
  • 5 large stalks green garlic
  • ½ cup parsley leaves
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • Salt

    Mushrooms:
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ pound black trumpet mushrooms
  • Salt and pepper

    Clams:
  • 2 pounds Manila clams
  • 2 dried Arbol chilies, toasted and ground
  • 3 ounces butter
  • 4 ounces white wine

Method:

For the Green Garlic Broth:
Bring a large pot of heavily salted water to a boil. Slice the green garlic thinly (both the green and white parts) and reserve ½-cup sliced garlic for macerating. Blanch the remaining green garlic for 1 minute and shock in a salted ice water bath. Drain the blanched green garlic, reserving some of the residual water. Puree the green garlic, parsley and the residual water in a blender until smooth. Strain puree in to a bowl through a tamis. Drizzle puree with extra virgin olive oil.

Add the lemon zest and a pinch of salt to the reserved sliced green garlic. Place in a small bowl and cover with extra virgin olive oil. Let garlic macerate for at least one hour.

For the Mushrooms:
Heat a thin coating of extra virgin olive oil in a sauté pan, add black trumpet mushrooms, and season with salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat until the mushroom are tender and have rendered all their juices. Let cool on a parchment-lined sheet pan.

For the Clams:
Warm the macerated green garlic over medium heat until fragrant. Add the clams, Arbol chiles, butter, and white wine, cover the pans with a tight lid, and turn the heat up to high. The clams will open when done.

To Assemble and Serve:
In a bowl, toss the green garlic puree and black trumpet mushrooms together with the clams. If the broth is too thick, thin with a small amount of water. Check seasoning and add lemon juice to balance. Serve with toast.

Wine Pairing: 2004 Syncline Milbrandt Vineyards Syrah
