    Yes, I always order this soup at Taiwanese restaurants. I didn’t know it’s so easy to make, now I can make this ginger and clam soup at home. Restaurant is about $10 for a small bowl!

  2. When it’s a fresh catch of clams, it just need a simple way of cooking it ay. Me, i’ll add in some spring onions, and a teeny weeny drop of sesame oil.

    Cheers.

  3. I love clams!!

    Bee – what can we substitute for rice wine? Would it be a huge deal to just omit it? I know the taste will be different but we don’t consume alcohol. It looks delish, I definitely want to try it.

    I love this dish!
    Every year I go back to Taiwan, I will eat so much of it ( at home) until I can live without it for a while…
