Cooking Ingredients for Thai Clam Pot Recipe

3 lb Small clams in shells (about
-48); scrubbed
2 tb Cornmeal
6 oz Somen (wheat flour noodles);
1 ts Vegetable oil
1 ts Crushed red pepper
8 Cloves garlic; thinly sliced
8 Green onions; cut in 2
1-1/2 c Water
3/4 c Mirin; (sweet rice wine)
1 c Thinly sliced fresh basil
2 tb Fish sauce

Thai Clam Pot Preparation

1. Place clams in a large bowl; cover with cold water. Sprinkle with cornmeal; let stand 30 minutes. Drain; rinse. 2. Cook the somen in boiling water 5 minutes; drain. Rinse under cold water. Drain; set aside. 3. Heat oil in a large Dutch Oven over medium-high heat. Add pepper, garlic, and green onions; stir-fry 30 seconds. Add 1 1/2 cups water and mirin; bring to a boil. Add clams; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 8 minutes or until clams open. Discard any unopened shells. Stir in basil and fish sauce; cook 1 additional mixture. 4. Spoon 1/2 cup noodles into each of 6 bowls; top each with 3/4 cup cooking liquid and 8 clams in shells. Yield: 6 servings. Notes: Cooked angel hair pasta can be used in place of the somen noodles, if desired. The substantial quantity of mirin makes this dish surprisingly sweet.
