Stir-Fry Savoury Clams With Black Bean Sauce

I like Savoury Clams cooked in Chinese style. This is a recipe for Stir-Fry Savoury Clams With Black Bean Sauce. The clams are sweet and a little salty, from the fermented black beans. It’s simply delicious with just some steamed rice. Try it!

    This recipe worked really well for me even though I had to use mussels instead of clams, as this is the only shellfish available from our local supermarket; didn't have to add any salt in the end.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
