    This is a Japanese way of preparing clams, steamed in a wok with sake, mirin, soy sauce and butter. Delicious!

    Serves: 4 

    • 4 teaspoons sake
    • 4 teaspoons mirin (Japanese sweet cooking wine)

    1. Heat a wok or large saucepan over high heat. Quickly pour in the sake, mirin and rice vinegar. Add the clams; cover and cook until the clams open, 3 to 4 minutes. Discard any clams that do not open. Remove any scum that forms on the surface using a spoon or paper towel. Stir in the butter, soy sauce and spring onion, tossing to coat the clams as the butter melts. Arrange clams on a serving plate and drizzle the sauce over them. Serve immediately.
