Portuguese Chorizo Clam Stew With Garlic Aioli

  • Yield: 4 main-course servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups quartered unpeeled red potatoes
  • 3/4 cup Garlic Aioli
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound andouille, chorizo, or other good smoked sausage (about 4 links), each link cut into 3 or 4 pieces
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 8 turns freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cups Shrimp Stock
  • 4 dozen littleneck clams, scrubbed
  • 1 cup peeled, seeded, and chopped Italian plum tomatoes (about 4)
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 teaspoon Emeril's Creole Seasoning

Directions

  • Cook the potatoes in 6 cups boiling water until tender, for about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and drain.
  • Prepare the Garlic Aioli and set aside.
  • Combine the oil and andouille in a large skillet over high heat and brown the andouille, stirring occasionally, for about 3 minutes. Stir in the onions, cilantro, garlic, potatoes, salt, crushed red pepper, black pepper, and the Shrimp Stock and bring to a boil.
  • Add the clams, tomatoes, green onions, and Creole Seasoning. Cover the skillet and cook over high heat until all the clams are open, for about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  • To serve, divide the stew among 4 shallow bowls, allowing about 12 clams for each serving, and drizzle with 3 tablespoons of the Garlic Aioli.
