Ingredients

  • 5 pounds Manila clams
  • 1/4 cup dark soy sauce
  • 4 teaspoons oyster sauce
  • 3 limes, juiced
  • 1/2 cup grated coconut palm sugar
  • 3 tablespoons freshly cracked black pepper (largest grind on a peppermill)
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped garlic
  • One 4-inch piece ginger, peeled and minced
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 ounce fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 ounce fresh Thai basil leaves
  • 1 ounce fresh mint leaves
  • Toasted sourdough bread, sliced 1-inch-thick, brushed with olive oil, for serving
  • Lime wedges, for serving

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Place the clams in a large bowl and rinse under cold, running water for 5 to 10 minutes to "spit" the clams of all sand and grit. Drain and set aside. In a small bowl, combine the dark soy, oyster sauce, lime juice, coconut palm sugar and half the black pepper. Set aside. Heat the oil in a large saute pan or skillet over high heat. Add the garlic, ginger and the remaining black pepper and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, to release the flavors, but do not let the garlic brown. Add the clams. Add 1/2 cup water and cover immediately to let the clams steam open. This will take 3 to 4 minutes. All the clams should be open, remove any that are not. Add the oyster sauce mixture. Stir well. Add the butter, stir well and pour out into a large bowl. Serve immediately with the fresh herbs sprinkled over the top, toasted bread and wedges of fresh lime to squeeze over the clams.
