1) Heat olive oil. Add the garlic cloves and let infuse the oil. Slice chorizo into 1cm coins. Add chorizo into pan and render. Add clams. Pour wine over clams. Cover pan and let clams steam, about 5 mins, or until all the clams have opened. Once cooked through, discard any clams that have not opened. Finish by squeezing half an orange over clams. Remove clams and chorizo using slotted spoon into large bowl. With the remaining broth, whisk in saffron aioli. Pour mixture over clams and chorizo. Sprinkle with parsley.
2) For the saffron aioli: Steep saffron in hot water. In a blender, add garlic, egg yolks, almonds, salt, orange juice, saffron and blend. While blending, drizzle in the olive oil and emulsify. Thin with a little water, if desired.
*RAW EGG WARNING
Food Network Kitchens suggest caution in consuming raw and lightly-cooked eggs due to the slight risk of Salmonella or other food-borne illness. To reduce this risk, we recommend you use only fresh, properly-refrigerated, clean, grade A or AA eggs with intact shells, and avoid contact between the yolks or whites and the shell.
