Gingered Mussels and Clams with Kale. A great dinner for a busy weeknight. Dinner takes about 25 minutes total other than the soaking of the mussels and clams. Step by step photos are included on the related blog link.
To prep the mussels and clams:
In a large bowl add mussels, clams, 4 tablespoons of sea salt and 10 cups fresh water. Set the bowl aside and allow them to soak for 20 minutes. Drain and rinse the clams and mussels under cold water to remove debris. Set aside.
To assemble the dish:
In a large pot add olive oil and butter. Heat over medium-high heat until oil is hot and butter is melted. Add the onion and saute until caramelized. Add the garlic, ginger, rosemary and lemon zest. Stir and heat until fragrant.
Stir in white wine, sriracha sauce, sea salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer. Add washed and drained mussels and clams. Add kale and stir. Cover pot with lid. Cook for 5 minutes. Remove the lid and stir everything around then put the lid back on. Cook an additional 5-10 minutes until mussels and clams open and kale is tender.
Discard any unopened clams. Serve!
This salmon dish is perfect lighter fare for hotter days. I like to serve it with salad greens and charred pita bread to spoon the extra tzatziki on top of. This whole meal comes together before you know it.
