    Karoline Boehm Goodnick for The Boston Globe

    Serves 4 with leftovers

    5medium russet potatoes, halved
    3tablespoons olive oil
    Salt and pepper, to taste
    2cloves garlic, chopped
    1large onion, thinly sliced
    8ounces chorizo, thinly sliced
    36littleneck clams, rinsed and scrubbed
    cups dry white wine
    ½bunch fresh parsley, stemmed and chopped

    1. Set the oven at 450 degrees.

    2. In a soup pot, combine the potatoes with cold water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes (they will not be tender). Drain, cool, and peel. Refrigerate 2 potatoes for the seafood stew. Chop remaining 3 potatoes into 1-inch pieces.

    3. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss potatoes with 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic. Roast for 30 minutes or until crisp.


    4. Meanwhile, in a large flameproof casserole over medium high heat, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add the onion and cook, stirring, for 8 minutes or until just beginning to brown. Add the chorizo, clams, and wine. Bring to a boil, cover the pan, and cook for 5 minutes or until clams open.
