The Arctic Surf Clams is great as an appetizer. It is best served cold. You can buy frozen, ready cooked Arctic Surf Clams from Asian Supermarket like T&T in Vancouver.
- 1 package of Frozen Arctic Surf Clams
- 2 tablespoons chopped green onions
- 2 tablespoons chopped coriander leaves
- 1 to 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons chopped garlic
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon vinegar
- juice from 1/2 lemon
The Arctic Surf Clams have to be washed thoroughly as there may be sand in them. In order to do that, cut the clams into halves and rub away any sands in them. Rinse with cold drinking water and pat dry them. The Arctic Surf Clams can be cut into strips if you prefer. Chill the Arctic Surf Clams in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
To make the sauce, combine together the sesame oil, Bonito seasonings, sugar, vinegar and lemon juice. Pour the sauce over the chilled Arctic Surf Clams and mix thoroughly.
Sprinkle the dish with Bonito Rice seasoning or toasted sesame seeds. You may serve the Arctic Surf Clams with a Garlic Soy Sauce.
The Arctic Surf Clams is great to be served in summer. I love the sesame oil and coriander fragrance which permeates the dish.
