Clams have many health benefits. They are high in iron and protein, low in fats and great for those on a diet.

Timing is important for this dish. Clams only open when they are completely cooked. Over-cooking the clams will cause them to become tough and chewy.

Clams being naturally salty, there is no need to add salt to this dish.
