“This recipe is the best for seafood lovers. Clams are steamed with sake and mirin and a bit of green onion in this Japanese way of preparation. My husband likes it so much.” - by Lilibeth:)
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Scrub and rinse clams. Soak in a large bowl of cold water for 5 minutes. Drain thoroughly.
- Heat a wok or large saucepan over high heat. Quickly pour in the sake, mirin and rice vinegar. Add the clams; cover and cook until the clams open, 3 to 4 minutes. Discard any clams that do not open.
- Remove any scum that forms on the surface using a spoon or paper towel. Stir in the butter, soy sauce and green onion, tossing to coat the clams as the butter melts. Arrange clams on a serving plate and drizzle the sauce over them. Serve immediately.

"This was very different than any other clam dish I've had. It was very sweet; actually much sweeter than I expected. I'd make it again but I'd love to know what others are serving with this dish. I se..." See morerved miso soup but that wasn't a very good match to the flavor of this dish."
"I made this recipe a couple of months ago and my hubby, who is sceptical of clams, loved it. When he asked for it today I dug out the recipe, added it to my recipe notebook (only recipes I will prepa..." See morere again and again make it in), and decided I should add my review. I prepared the clams as per the recipe. At the end I sprinkled it with lots of green onions sliced in long, diagonal slices just to pretty it up. This one is a keeper - easy to prepare and delicious. Many thanks to Lilibeth for the recipe. "
