Hoyy Laii Pad Nam Prik Phao*

Tuesday, April 6, 2010

Hoyy Laii Pad Nam prik Phao or fired soft-shell clams with homemade chili paste or in malaysia they called " stired fried LALA "
For this dish I will teach you how to clean the lala also .
smelly , dirty mud , some shell not even open!!!???!!!



Soft-shell clams ( wash 5-6 times at least )
Homemade chili paste ( u can see how to make it from my previous post )
Sweet basil
Kaffir leaf
Garlic ( chopped )
Fish sauce
Cooking Oil
Some water


#1# How To : Clean the mud and open the shell
For the clams that already open abit u can use ur hand and open it more so later u can wash it easily.and for those clams that not even open, u have to use the small knife to open it.Gentle and slowly at this step.I dont want u to hurt yourself later

Rinse with water for 5-6 times or until it looks clean.... then soak it in the salt water for at least 5 mins. so the clams will split out the dirty mud .

Rinse 2-3 time with water again . and take a look at those clean clams..
Now I can happily cook and yes happily eat it !!!

#2# How To : Hoyy Laii Pad Nam Prik Phao

Heat up the wok , add some oil .

Once the oil is hot. Add chopped garlic into the wok..fry it with the oil till fragrant.
Then put Clams in ...

Add Homemade red chili paste 2-3 tbsp.
Mix well...

Add 1 tbsp. of sugar

Add some fish sauce.mix well ( if its too dry u can add some water in )

put in sweet basil and kaffir leaf .mix one last time and off the stove.

Serve :)
