Clams with Rice

Stacy's aunt Noemia makes this dish for EVERY family gathering. Every one. It's almost a joke, until you taste it and think "you can cook this for me every day." I tried getting the recipe from her and it was worse than getting it from Stacy's mother--ingredients all over the place, directions out of order, a lot of "you remember when you added the onion? Before that . . ." at the end of it all, we got a great recipe, though. --Mark


large can of clams
1 onion
2 cups rice
2 chicken bouillon cubes (or 1 Knorr)
1 packet Goya seasoning with saffron
olive oil
butter (optional)


Cook rice in water and clam juice, reserving some clam juice on the side.

Chop clams. Saute in olive oil with bouillon and some clam juice. Add Goya seasoning and onions, cooking through. Add parsley.

Add cooked rice to clams and mix. Add butter if desired.
