Must Have Soup: Clams

5 Jun

The Chinese clam soup is one of the easiest soups to make.  Ingredients: 1/2 lb of manila clams, 1 small piece of ginger, finely sliced, 1/2 cup of Chinese rice wine.

Clams soaked in water, ready to make soup

ginger

First, soak the clams in cold water for half an hour with a few drops of sesame oil.  The fragrance of sesame oil will help the clams spit out dirt.  In a pot, heat up 3 cups of water.  When the water comes to a boil, drop the clams in.  When the clams start to open up, pour in the rice wine.  When the soup comes to another boil, drop in the giner and season with salt.  That’s it.  Very simple, and very delicious. Bon appetite!
