White Wine Garlic Manila Clams


If you are a fan of clams, you have got to try this simple white wine garlic manila clams recipe!

We recently came back from the Oregon Coast which is quickly becoming one of our favorite vacationing spots! 

It’s our second visit to this beautiful destination but our first time we were able to dig for clams.  Last time the tides didn’t work in our favor so we felt so lucky that we were able to go clamming this time around.

Now, if you’re the type of person who likes to roll up your sleeves and be outdoors, we highly recommend giving clamming a try! 

It’s a ton of fun and really an awesome feeling to catch your own dinner (just like fishing)!

We ended up finding over 30 clams so we decided to use them to make our White Wine Garlic Manila Clams recipe! 

And although the recipe has the name Manila in it, all types of clams work with this recipe so feel free to use any kind you like.

This white wine broth is briny and smooth like it’s Western counterpart with just a little Asian flair added in!  The additional ingredients are subtle, but it will show up in the final dish! 

Give it a try next time you see some clams for sale!

Now, although clams are technically a ‘meat’, they do have carbs in it.  12 clams will run you roughly 4g of carbs. 

It’s not much but just something to keep in mind.  On the flip side, clams, are packed with protein, omega 3s and other essential minerals so we think the trade-off is well worth it. 

This dish as a whole will run around a low-carb/keto~5g net carbs per serving!

For this dish, the only special ingredients you would need is Soy Sauce, which you can pick up on Amazon or pretty much anywhere.

Now, let’s get cooking!
