INGREDIENTS

1kg of clams ( soak the clams in salt water for about half an hour to get rid of excess grit)

1 tbsp of oyster sauce

cherry tomatoes (x10)

coriander leaves

4 cloves of garlic, chopped finely

1 inch ginger, sliced

3 sticks of lemongrass, sliced thinly

pounded chilli padi (6 or more)

chicken cube: 1 tsp (optional)

1tbsp of sugar

oil for frying

salt

METHOD

  1. Heat oil in a wok.  When hot, stir fry lemongrass, ginger, garlic and chilli padi.
  2. Add oyster sauce, sugar and salt ( just a pinch will do because oyster sauce is already salty)
  3. Then add the  clams and coriander leaves mix well and cover with tight lid until the clams start opening
  4. Lastly, add the chicken cube and tomatoes mix well and add some more coriander leaves and ready to serve 🙂

VERDICT

It has a spicy, unique taste bursting with flavours!

It’s a fascinating blend of zest and freshness from the clams, which is hard to parallel in any other Asian dish.

Can be eaten with anything, even on its own:)
