Clam Chaos at the IncrEDIBLE Picnic

Last Saturday I decided to participate in the Select Nova Scotia IncrEDIBLE Picnic at Alderney Landing in Dartmouth. I concocted a little dish for the event called “Clam Chaos”. Some of you may have been a part of the lucky few one who got to try it (I sold out after 3 hours). Many had asked for a recipe, so here it is!

Clam Chaos

  • 5lbs clams; steamed and shucked and kept in their cooking liquid until needed
  • 1 lbs snow peas; julienned
  • 1 apple; julienned
  • 10 radishes; thinly sliced
  • 1 lbs potatoes; thinly sliced and cooked
  • 1/2 cup basil; chiffonade
  • 1/2 cup parley; chopped
  • 1/4 cup walnut oil
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 white wine vinegar
  • salt & pepper
  • truffle oil; optional

Mix all the ingredients together and add the drained clams at the end. This recipe makes enough for 4 people as a main course.

Tip: Use a mandolin or Benriner to prepare the thinkly sliced or julienned ingredients. As you may already know a Benriner is one of my favourite kitchen tools. Click here for my 10 Kitchen Tools I Can’t Live Without.
