Kirstin: So I knew we would be passing a fishmonger on the way to checking in on my mother during lockdown. I called them the night before and checked that they were still getting clams and yes. Yes, yes they were! So this meant that we could literally pop in on the way. And while we were there, I also picked up 6 oysters (from Orford) because never miss an opportunity. This recipe is tried and tested over SO MANY YEARS. And now our children like clams we can all share this meal on a Friday night. Also, while looking for an online version of this recipe to link to, I see that the River Cafe has now adapted the recipe and added BUTTER to make the sauce thicker. Which I shall have to try next time!
