The clams were selling for 25 cents per 100g at the NTUC supermarket that I bought a bag for $3.50.
Wash the clams thoroughly and soak them in a basin of salt water till ready to cook. The clams were stir fried over high heat in sambal and black tau-cheo sauce. Cover the wok and cook till clams are all open.
We prepare simple and easy food on normal day due to my working schedule as I come home around 7pm. By the time we settle down for dinner it usually past eight. Normally dishes are 1 veg, a fish, a soup and a salad. I will pamper my family on weekend, either dine out or prepare more elaborate meal.
