Saute of clams with saffron

Ingredients for 4 people



 1 kg clams

5 shallots

a tablespoon of tomato pulp

1 glass of white wine

2 sachets of saffron

1 bay leaf

extra virgin olive oil

salt and freshly ground pepper

Scrape the shells and wash the clams thoroughly. Peel and slice the shallots and let them brown with a bit of oil in a very large pot.
Add the clams with the bay leaf , often shaking the pot and stirring, let them open.
Once opened, remove from heat, strain the cooking bottom into another pot, add the wine, tomato pulp and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Bring to a boil, add the saffron and then the clams, stir and serve accompanied with toasted bread, rubbed with fresh garlic.
