Clams. You either love the plumpy meat or you hate it. If you love clams just like us, then behold, this recipe will forever get you hooked. What's even better is that it will take you 15 minutes from prepping to the finished dish!
Like many fresh mollusks, fresh clams are best eaten shell attached and lightly cooked, either through steamed or stir fried (frozen clams are a whole different story). You have to be extremely careful not to overcook them because a minute of extra cooking time could increase the chewiness of the meat by many folds. However, fresh clams can be easily prepared compare to the rest of the shellfish -- no deveining, no deboning, and no shucking. Quickly executed and yet still provides the same satisfaction as any other fresh seafood.
Since H-mart opened up nearby, we have the privilege of savoring fresh clams more of often than before. Here is our take of the Japanese style sake steamed littleneck clams.
