For the clams:

  • Steam the clams until open, covered with fumet.
  • Separate the clams from the shells and chop the clams into brunoise. Save both for later.

For the filling:

  • In a bowl with melted butter, cook the onion, cut into brunoise.
  • Add the peeled and chopped prawns, cook for some minutes and add the chopped clams (without shells).
  • Add flour and mix, making a roux with all the ingredients.
  • Add the milk and the stock to open the clams, cook constantly stirring until it thickens and the raw flour flavour is gone.
  • Add salt, white pepper, nutmeg and Tabasco (spicy sauce).
  • Put the filling on a plate and wrap it tightly with plastic wrap to avoid it crusting.
  • Allow the filling to cool in the blast chiller and save for later.

How to fill the clams:

  • Fill the shells with the filling and cover them in breadcrumbs.

For the garnish:

  • Make a piperrada (basic roasted peppers stew).
  • For the sauce américaine foam:
    • Make a thick sauce américaine or thicken it when finished with dry mashed potatoes or with any other thickener.
  • Add 3 or 4 egg whites, mix everything and add salt.
  • Strain the mixture with a sieve and introduce it into the 1 litre siphon, with 2 loads of N2O.
  • Put in bain-marie at approximately 50 or 55 ºC.



  • Fry the clams and place on kitchen paper to get rid of the excess oil.
  • Heat the piperrada and form a cone shape on one side of the plate.
  • Fill it with the sauce américaine foam.
  • Place the clams next to the piperrada.
  • Decorate with chopped parsley and the crispy potatoes.
