Ingredients

200g clams

200g mussels

200g canned white beans or chickpeas, drained

4 raw prawns, peeled or unpeeled

8 cherry tomatoes, halved

1 small red chilli, sliced

10 small black olives

2 garlic cloves, finely sliced

3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

80ml white wine

Sea salt and pepper

Handful of parsley leaves

Extra virgin olive oil for serving

Method

1. Soak the clams and mussels in cold water for an hour.

2. Heat the oven to 225C.

3. To make two oven bags, take two 50-centimetre-long sheets of wide kitchen foil, and fold in half so they join end to end. Crimp the sides together to seal, leaving the top open. Loosely line the inside with a sheet of baking paper.

4. Drain the clams and mussels, and debeard the mussels.

5. Toss with the prawns, beans, cherry tomatoes, olives, chilli, garlic, olive oil, white wine, sea salt and pepper, and divide between the two parcels.

6. Crimp the tops to seal, place on a baking tray and bake for 15 minutes or until the bags puff up. To serve, scatter with parsley, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and serve.
