Seafood is big in Chinese food, especially saltwater seafoods. Regions where excellent seafood can be found include Hong Kong and much of Guangzhou, Macau, Hainan Island, Shanghai and Fujuan, as well as Sydney, San Francisco and Boston. Anyways, Fried Clams are very tasty. Nice appetizer.


  1. Cover clams with cold water for 30 minutes, then dry.
  2. Heat oil, sweeten with garlic. Fry clams in oil quickly until shells open. Add scallion and ginger.
  3. Add in 1 tablespoon of sugar, some soy sauce and a sprinkle of red peppers. Stir very quickly. Thicken with the cornstarch mixture and serve immediately.
