Even if you think you’re not a clam lover, this recipe will change your mind (it did for me!). Use the steam function on your Anova Precision Oven to cook your clams in a single even layer to tell what opened and what didn’t. Meanwhile, the high heat fan settings will get your sweet potatoes nice and crisp to create a balanced dish that’s more bright, intense flavors than your standard butter and herb seafood dish.
