Poached clam with glass noodles
Soak the freshly bought clam with a very small pinch of salt and oil, so they can spit sands.
Then heat a large pot of water to a boiling, add ginger and then cook the clams until opened. Don’t over cook in this step. This helps to remove the odd taste.
In the claypot, place golden needle mushroom in bottom. Then pre-soaked glass noodles in middle and blanched clam on top.
In a small pan, add 3 tablespoons of vegetable cooking oil and fry garlic, ginger, scallion and chili peppers until aromatic. Add oyster sauce, light soy sauce, salt, sugar and black pepper. Mix well.
Add 1 cup of water along with the edges . Spread the garlic sauce on the surface of the claypot and cook fro 10 mins.
