Smaller than their extra large siblings, but by no means small, these clams from Conservas de Cambados are a perfect presentation of a tapas classic.
Harvested from the rías of Spain’s Galician coast, they are shucked, cleaned, and inspected by expert hands to ensure not even the smallest grain of sand makes it into the tin. The result is a gorgeously simple and elegant tin, one we love on potato chips with a dash of tabasco, or served atop a warm bed of orzo with a pad or two of grassfed butter.
