We will start by leaving the clams in cold water with salt so that they release the sand. We chop the garlic cloves and reserve them. Heat the oil in a saucepan and brown the sliced garlic, add the bay leaf and the paprika and quickly add the homemade tomato sauce and white wine. We continue cooking for five minutes so that the alcohol in the wine evaporates.
Add the clams, salt and cover them with a lid until they open, which can be in five or six minutes. Serve hot with chopped and sprinkled fresh parsley.
