Steamed Clams With Ginger And Wine
Steamed Clams With Ginger And Rice Wine is one of my favorite seafood dishes. A simple dish that is yummy on it’s own or eaten with some steamed rice. The combination of the wine, fresh clams, and chopped ginger makes this dish so addictive. Try it.

Steamed Clams With Ginger And Rice Wine
750 to 800 grams(1 3/4 lbs) of Savoury Clams or about 1 Kg of Manila Clams, washed and drained well
2 Thai Bird's Eye Chilies, smashed or chopped
1/2 inch Ginger, julienned or chopped
1/2 Cup Shaoxing Rice Wine
1 Tbsp Peanut Oil
Sea Salt to taste
2 Scallions, chopped
In a large wok over high heat, add peanut oil and ginger. Stir briefly until fragrant and toss in the chili and clams. Give it a quick stir and mix in the rice wine. Close the lid and cook until all the clams’ shells are open. Season the clams lightly with sea salt, if desired and top with some chopped scallions. Serve immediately.
