How to steam clams and mussels...

Last week i went to a place call Brussels Sprout @ Robertson. As a typical Singaporean, i am so used to the bbq seafood style of chilli seafood or stir fry with some sauce. However western way of preparing shellfish like clams and mussels is to steam them and they are simple yet delicious.

Here i have is New Zealand Clams steam simply with some simple ingredients.

Simple steam clams....

chilli padi
Clam juice
White wine

Saute garlic and chilli till fragrant (or choking if u love chilli padi).
add in white wine and clam juice and reduce it by half.
add in the clams then cover the pot for 2 min till all the clams are open. Discard the close ones.

Add in some butter and toss around then add in some lemon juice.
