This spaghetti vongole with shiitake mushrooms is one of our recurring meals on seafood Tuesdays. Smoky, briny and earthy, it’s the perfect marriage between Japanese and Mediterranean flavors. It’s not complicated either, which makes it that much more attractive to cook on days when cooking feels like work.
Bring a large pot of salted water to boil.
Meanwhile in a large pan over high heat, add oil, garlic and cook for one minute.
Add dried red chilies and cook for another minute.
Add sake, soy, light soy, cockles and shiitake mushrooms bring it to a boil.
Add pasta to the vongole sauce and mix well using tongs. Top with shredded nori and serve.
