Japan-produced yellowtail with its ample fat and soft flesh is ideal for stews.

This is a simple recipe, but by boiling it together with short-necked clams and vegetables, its tastiness becomes concentrated, and is finished with a richly aromatic sauce.

How to make it

  • A dish with the concentration of seafood tastiness

  • Soak the clams in salted water for half to a whole day and flush them of sand.

  • Finely chop the garlic, onion and leaf parts of the Italian parsley.

  • Pour olive oil into a pan, fry the garlic, add the onion and fry on a low heat slowly until they soften and the water content has gone.

  • Add the white wine, put on a high heat and evaporate off the alcohol. When the alcohol has evaporated, add the water, bring to the boil, and add the Italian parsley.

  • Add the yellowtail and clams to the pan, bring to the boil and heat on a low heat.

  • Pile on a plate and serve.
