Recipe of the week. Sake steamed clams with shirataki noodles.

     This is a recipe from my restaurant "lime" probably the only recipe I will share from that menu. 

     I am really trying to promote the Shiratki noodles because I think people will really love them. Please see my post about "Shirataki miracle noodles"

     12- Little neck clams

     2- garlic cloves

     2- scallions 

     1 tbsp of freshly ground ginger
     1 tbsp of olive oil

     1/2 cup of sake 

     1 serving size of shiratki noodles

     1 teaspoon of salt

      Wash the clams well and leave to stand in salted water for a couple of hours to wash away all the sand.

     Finely chop the scallions, garlic, and fresh ginger. Add the olive oil, scallions garlic, fresh ginger, and clams into a saucepan and place over a high heat. Add salt and sautee for about 1 minute. After 1 minute add the sake then immediately cover and leave to cook for about three minutes. Once the clams open add the noodles and cook for about 1 more minute, at this time if you need more broth add more sake.

     Serving size: 1

     * If you would like to add a vegetable to this recipe try baby spinach.
