Superior stock 上汤 steamed Lala (clams)

Bought this Lala(clams) from the nearby wet market, and it just cost me RM5...and this is so simple to cook.If you take this at the outside restaurant, it will cost you much much more than this...

-before steam



-after steamed


Recipe to share

1. Wash and clean the Lala(clams).

2. Add in Superior chicken stock (I use the instant Maggi brand chicken stock), shredded ginger, light soy sauce, "Hua Tiao Chew" Chinese wine, sugar, salt, garlic oil, shredded red chili, chili padi (optional), spring onion and ground pepper.

3. Steam for 5mins and serve hot.

Hello, thanks for dropping by to say hi =)

Could you guide me on how to choose Lala.. meaning how do i know if the Lala is fresh?

Emile Zola@life said...

dtlm82, I also not that expert, anyway, when I see the Lala's shell is open and moving, then I guess these are the fresh one...

米亚 said...

yes! this is what I was told too! when the shells are opened, they are fresh! 上汤lala is so delicious... do you know that restaurant in meru... called Boston (or smthg similar)??? it is popular with lala... I like their nestum prawn too!

Emile Zola@life said...

Mia, you are right, this is one the popular dish in Boston restaurant, but I seldom take dinner there, very busy during dinner time...

Lianne said...

Bakeling said...

After checking those ingredients that you used , I am sure that plate of lala is the best yummy lala !

icic.. ok.. then if i ever saw "alive" LaLa, i will buy it. haha

We need to soak it in salt water to make it "puke out the sand" right? Roughly how long to soak?

Nancy said...

但是根据我所知..要选择新鲜的LALA最好是两个壳是紧闭的,如果用手轻轻轻掰一下就打开的就不新鲜了...买回来要把它们放在水中吐沙后才能烹煮!

要怎么知道它们吐完了? 要用salt water吗?

Cindy Khor said...

Colin Woon said...

I missed this so much! No such thing here in Texas! Mmmm...

Emile Zola@life said...

Lianne and Colin, you have to wait till you return MY then only got chance to try this lor...

Bakeling, yes, you are right, the stock is super sweet and yummy

Ana, frankly speaking, I dont know when they will finish throw out the sand, use your common sense, and you will gain cooking experiences with few failed attempted,ok...By the way, I dont add salt in water...

Nancy, you are a expert..

Little corner of mine, Can you get lala from your area?
