Ingredients

Directions

  1. 1 of 3 Remove the muscle on the side of the scallop that it uses to attach itself to the shell and discard. Refrigerate the scallops and clams until ready to use.
  2. 2 of 3 Melt butter in a large soup pot over medium-low heat. Add the leeks and gently cook them until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the flour and cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes longer. Add wine and clam juice. Increase heat to medium-high; boil until reduced by a third, about 15 minutes. Add cream and potatoes; return heat to medium-low. Simmer until potatoes are tender, about 12 minutes. (Can be made ahead to this point and chilled. To serve, reheat gently over low heat and proceed.)
  3. 3 of 3 Add the clams and scallops and simmer until just heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Ladle into hot soup bowls and garnish with the parsley and paprika.
