Frying pan full of clams with samphire

One of our staples and absolute favourites. British clams in sake, a Japanese wine that will take your clams from a 8 to a 10. This boozy delight is perfect for a quick but addictive dinner for two with the addition of some fresh pasta. Alternatively you could place this in the middle of the table for a group and serve with fresh crusty bread for everyone to have a taste. 

200g Clams
100g Samphire
2 Garlic cloves
2 tablespoons veg oil
100m Sake

5. Toss and put the lid on the pan
