Spicy Clams

Being thousands of miles away from the sea, we do not have the luxury of fresh seafood and have to cook with frozen ones. Frozen fishes are ok but make sure that they do not have froze bites and frozen clams are edible if cooked the proper way. Like the hokkien say 'bo hu, hae ma see ho' and 'bo bian'

1 packet of frozen clams
1 tsp chopped ginger
1 tsp chopped garlic
1 tbsp hot bean paste
2 tbsp shao xing wine
1/2 tsp sugar
chopped spring onions
2 tbsp oil

Heat oil, add in chopped ginger and chopped garlic. Saute until fragrant then add in hot bean paste.
Add in the frozen clams and stir fry.
Add in the shao xing wine and cover the wok for 1 minute.
Uncover and check if the clams are heated through(do not overcook)
Add sugar to taste and spring onions.
Discard any clams that are not opened and dish up and serve

Learn something new, I thought frozen clams are dead and the shell will not open, that's why I never thought about buying them.

You can actually buy live clams from Asian seafood market in the US now. They would make a better dish. Looks very tasty! Yum!
