    1. Place the clams, mussels and cockles in a bucket and soak in fresh salt water for several hours to clean them of sand and grit.
    2. Prepare a large saucepan with water and add the bruised lemongrass. Heat until boiling.
    3. The seafood all cooks at different rates so add each variety separately just until open. Remove to a platter to cool. When cool remove the meat from the shells and reserve.
    4. Dressing: Place all of the remaining ingredients except the lettuce in a bowl and mix. Add the seafood and toss gently. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.
    5. Place the salad on a platter and arrange the lettuce around the salad.
