Mealthy Tip

Keep in mind that capers are very salty, so don’t overdo it with seasoning the dish. Have a hard time finding fresh clams? Use mussels instead, which are widely available at most grocery stores and will give a similar flavor. Throw out any mussels that don't open when cooked.

I was on the fence about this one originally. I did hold back on the amount of capers as they are extremely salty. The caper flavor was still very prevalent. I added a little bit more red chile flakes for some extra heat in the pasta.

This was my first time preparing clams and I was pleasantly surprised. They were also surprisingly easy to prepare. My wife was also very impressed, and she is more of a picky eater. This also makes for a nice date night dish.

I made this recipe (without capers) and it was really delicious. I don't mind eating the extra carbs with pasta and wine, occasionally. Especially when it involves clams! Yum!

I love the salty capers, they really add a nice flavor balance to this dish. Also, I used mussels instead of clams.

I love this recipe, especially the butter and caper sauce. I recommend using unsalted butter because capers lend so much flavor already. I also used fresh linguine, best decision ever.
