Fabes con almejas (English: Beans with clams, Spanish: Habas con almejas, Asturian: Fabes con amasueles) is a clam and bean stew that originated in the principality of Asturias in the 19th century as peasant fare.[1] It is a lighter variation of Asturian fabada whose primary ingredients are sausage, beans and pork.

The traditional recipe for fabes con almejas calls for small clams, fava beans, onions, garlic, salt, saffron, bay leaves, olive oil, parsley, bread crumbs and sometimes sweet paprika.[2][3]
