Today is National Clam Day. I personally have never had clam before I am hoping to try it very soon though maybe I will cook up this recipe that I am sharing with everyone.
Clams in Oyster Sauce
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 (2 inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
2 Tablespoons oyster sauce
1/2 cup water
2 1/4 pounds clams in shell, scrubbed
1. Heat the oil in a large pot with a lid over medium heat.
2. Cook the onion and garlic in the hot oil until fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the ginger to the mixture and cook another 2 minutes. Stir the oyster sauce into the mixture; cover and cook another 2 minutes.
3. Pour the water into the mixture, cover and cook another 2 minutes.
4 Add the Clams; cover and cook until the majority of the clams have opened, about 5 minutes. Discard any clams that do not open. Serve Immediately
