Description

This fast and delicious dinner of fresh clams in a slightly spicy ginger coconut red curry is on the table in less than 30 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds Steamer Clams (littlenecks Or Manilas Would Also Work)
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Finely Chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Ginger, Minced Or Grated
  • 3 teaspoons Red Curry Paste
  • 2 teaspoons Fish Sauce
  • 1 cup Chicken Broth
  • 1 cup Coconut Milk
  • ¼ cups Cilantro, Chopped
  • 1 whole Lime, Cut Into Wedges
  • Salt To Taste

Preparation

For best results, soak your clams in a cool freshwater bath for 20 minutes prior to cooking.

Rinse and clean your clams. Discard any clams that are broken or are already open. Set the others aside.

In a pot or Dutch oven, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the garlic and ginger and cook about two minutes, until fragrant. Stir in the curry paste and cook another 2 minutes. Then add the fish sauce, chicken broth, and coconut milk. Bring to a simmer, lower the heat to medium low, pour in the clams, and cover. Steam the clams for 5-7 minutes until they all pop open (if there are some still unopened after 7 minutes, discard them). Remove from heat. Stir in cilantro, the juice from 1 lime wedge and salt to taste. Serve with additional lime wedges and steamed rice or crusty bread.

Note: A leaf or two of Thai basil chopped up in this would be wonderful if you can get your hands on it.

I have yet to try clams yet (crazy, I know!). Montana is not known for its seafood, so I am always a little cautious. But this makes me want to try them very soon!
