Our answer

Nigella's Linguine With Clams (from HOW TO EAT) is a sumptuous solo supper. It is worth finding fresh clams and we would suggest trying a fishmonger. There are several in central London if you look online. There are also some online retailers that will deliver next day.

You should use the clams as quickly as possible, ideally the same day or within 24 hours. If you have to store the clams then store them in the fridge, on a tray in a single layer, covered with a damp towel. Don't seal them in a box or cover them with food wrap as they need to breathe. Some supermarkets also sell frozen clams. If you use these then we suggest following the storage and thawing instructions on the packaging. Alternatively, you may like to try Nigella's Linguine With Mussels as mussels can sometimes be easier to find in supermarkets than clams. It is easy to halve the recipe quantities if you want to make this dish for just one person.
