1 Tbsp Peanut or Cooking Oil
2 Cloves Garlic, chopped
2 to 3 Tbsp Thai Roasted Chili Paste
1 Tbsp Fish Sauce
1 tsp Sugar or to taste
2 to 3 Thai Red Chili, slice thickly or crushed
A Handful of Asian/Thai Basil


In a large wok, heat the oil over high heat. Cook the garlic and chilies until fragrant and golden in color. Then add roasted chili paste and toss in the clams. Give it a quick stir and mix in the half of the Basil, fish sauce, and sugar. Give it another quick stir cover and cook until all the clams are open. Toss in the other half of Thai basil, mix well. Serve immediately.
