Heart Clams (Berberecho)

The meat of these tiny and delicious clams is often added to soups and rice dishes to give them more flavour, or chopped finely and used in fillings—however, many Spaniards like to eat them raw with a bit of lemon juice. A common appetizer in Spain is canned berberechos  served simply on a plate with oil and vinegar.
