Clams with chorizo and potatoes becomes a fisherman’s soup

Clams with chorizo and potatoes.

Karoline Boehm Goodnick for The Boston Globe

Clams with chorizo and potatoes.

Clams and chorizo are a traditional Portuguese combination, here mixed with potatoes that are boiled first, then roasted to acquire the right crispness, along with plenty of white wine and parsley.

On the second night, use some of the potatoes, clams, and their cooking juices to make suquet, a Catalonian seafood soup from the northeastern province of Spain. This fisherman’s specialty combines whatever seafood is available. Add white fish such as monkfish, hake, or haddock. Simmer the fish briefly with saffron and tomatoes, then swirl in picada, a kind of nut pesto (here made with almonds and parsley) to thicken the broth. The two cuisines merge in these dishes to make intensely flavored, nourishing bowls.
