Addictive Spanish Steamed Garlic Clams (Almejas al Ajillo)

Our fate with clams was sealed when we went to Sentosa for our staycation last year. We spent a couple of days at the Sofitel Resort and had dinner at Sabio by The Sea, Tapas Bar & Grill – a Spanish themed restaurant that serves up authentic Spanish dishes.

After that round of dinner, the guy and I became converts of this dish and had never looked back since.
