when i was at sheng shiong this morning i decided to buy some littleneck clams.

i was doing 2 pastas this evening so not planning to do vongole pasta.

so i bought just about 500g, and thought of doing it in the way like a pot of mussels.

it was really easy to do.

i had some garlic cloves browned in olive oil (can also used chopped garlic).

then i threw in (with some butter) sliced ginger, cut chilli padi, chopped yellow onions, chopped shallots, and some basil. then i added the stock & white wine, reduced, & then 4 tbsp heavy cream.

lastly i added in the clams, covered & waited few minutes for clams to open up ie cooked.

& that’s all there is to it!

a really tasty treat.

for me, it’s important that the stock itself is tasty. the cream enhanced the taste, and the clams added in the taste of the sea.

a simple, very delicious dish.
