1 yellow Bell pepper, chopped (100 g)
1 Garlic clove, minced

2 pounds little neck Clams (1 kg)
1/4 pound Spanish chorizo (spicy cured pork sausages) cut to ¼" di
2 tablespoons Fresh cilantro (coriander)
Cook onion, bell pepper, garlic, cumin seeds and salt in oil in a deep pot over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are softened, 7 to 9 mins. Stir in Wine and bring to boil.

Serve these clams with some crusty bread for sopping up the sauce.
