Ingredients

  • 3

    tablespoons olive oil

  • 1/4

    pound sausage, sliced 1/2-inch thick (chorizo, Italian sausage, and kielbasa all work well)

  • 1

    leek, sliced thinly

  • 1

    clove garlic, crushed

  • 8

    sprigs fresh thyme

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • 1 1/4

    teaspoons smoked paprika

  • 1

    bay leaf

  • 14

    ounces canned cherry tomatoes

  • 1/4

    cup chicken stock

  • 6

    tablespoons white wine

  • 2 1/2

    pounds littleneck clams, scrubbed

Directions

Heat the oil in a pan over medium-high heat and cook the sliced sausage until cooked through, about 8 minutes. Remove from the pan and reserve. Reduce the heat to medium and scrape the browned bits out. Add in the leek, garlic, and thyme and cook until softened, about 6 minutes. Add salt and pepper. Add in the paprika and the bay leaf and toss the contents of the pan with the spices to coat. Cook for 1 minute. Add in the tomatoes, stock, and wine and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 5 minutes. Add in the clams and cook until opened, about 8 to 10 minutes, stirring every so often. Serve warm with some bread.
