Dynamite Giant Clam Appetizer
For about 4 servings, count on half a geoduck per serving, you'll need:
2 Giant Clam (geoducks) or about 2 cups clams
1 large shallot, finely minced
1 tblsp chives, chopped
4 sprigs rau ram (Vietnamese coriander) or cilantro
2 tblsp mayonnaise, Japanese Kewpie mayonnaise if you have it
2 tblsp cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp Fish Sauce
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp Huy Fong Foods, Inc. Srirachi chili sauce
Wash and clean the geoducks. Slice into 1-inch pieces. Not too small because the clams will shrink when you cook them.
Finely dice 1 large shallot. Chop about 1 tblsp of chives. Slice 4 sprigs cilantro. Add 2 tblsp mayonnaise, Japanese Kewpie mayonnaise if you have it, 2 tblsp cheddar cheese, 1/2 Fish Sauce, 1/2 tsp ground black pepper, and 1/2 tsp Srirachi chili sauce.
Mix the ingredients together and place inside cleaned geoduck shells or ramekins.
Bake at 350 degrees in a toast oven for about 10 minutes. Definitely slurp the sauce because it's pretty tasty
