Pink clams (machas) parmigiana

In Chile and Peru, pink clams are called "machas" and cooking them in this way is very typical. With this quick and simple recipe, we reinvent the flavor of this seafood and enjoy a delicious dish.

Hey chef!

Did you know that clams stand out for their high value in proteins of high biological value and the low contribution in carbohydrates and fats?

  1. We open our can of pink clams and serve them in a baking dish.
  2. Add 3 to 4 tablespoons of butter above the source.
  3. Now, sprinkle the freshly grated Parmesan cheese. The amount will depend on the taste of each one.
  4. Add a little salt and pepper before baking.
  5. With the oven preheated to 180ºC, we cook the clams for approximately 5 minutes. They will be ready when the cheese has melted.
  6. Serve immediately without letting cool and enjoy, with a touch of parsley and lemon on each clam when serving.

As soon as the platter comes out of the oven, everyone will appear in the kitchen to avoid running out of their pink clams.
