Steamed Bamboo Clams

This is an easy recipe for steamed bamboo clams. Tang hoon (mung bean vermicelli) is placed beneath the clam meat so that it can soak up all the seafood juices released during steaming. The clams are topped in crispy garlic oil for that extra crunch and aroma.

I absolutely love steaming seafood at home because it is much cheaper than the “market rate” which restaurants charge, and seafood cooks really quickly (my clams were steamed in less than 4 minutes). Though I know them as bamboo clams, they are often labelled as “razor clams” in supermarkets (freezer section).

    Love love love seafood cooked in the simplest way, esp when the seafood is fresh!

    I always wonder if frozen clams (in a vacuum package) are fresh as I associate fresh seafood with water!!!

      Fresh is always first choice for me (and cooked on same day), followed by frozen vacuum sealed!
