Clams and wines are classic go-to partners. This flavor combination is well-balanced. That is why most of the clams in white wine recipes always take advantage of wine as a pairing, not just a drink, but also as one of the main components in the dish.
For additional flavor notes, you can add a stalk of lemongrass or a bunch of dill. You can also add some vegetables such as corn or potatoes to add body to the dish. A bit of cream and saffron would also be wonderful in this clams dish.
Here are the top picks for dry white wines with herbaceous and fruity notes:
- Sauvignon Blanc
- Pinot Blanc
