Clams with sweet potato mash

This is one of Fede's creations! It is so simple and unbelievably tasty if you can splash out for the clams. For 2 people.

2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
2 tablespoons of cooking oil
4 tablespoons milk
12-16 clams, washed
Half a lemon's juice
Handful of parsely, finely chopped
1 large sweet potato, chopped and peeled
1 large potato, chopped and peeled
Salt and pepper

1. To start, boil the sweet potato and potato with seasoning
2. When the potatoes are very soft, drain them and add butter, milk and more seasoning.
3. Keeping the mashed potato mixture hot, fry the garlic gently. Then add the clams and lemon juice. Cook until the clams have opened, about 2-5 minutes. Add a bit of butter and stir in to make a rish velvety and fishy sauce.
4. Serve the clams around the mashed potato including all the sauce and shells!
