How to make Steamed Egg Custard with Clams

  1. Soak clams in salted water to let it 'spit' out sand.
  2. Steam clams for 10 minutes or till are slightly opened.
  3. Remove clams and reserve liquid.
  4. Beat egg lightly in a bowl
  5. Add water and liquid from clams together
  6. Mix well.
  7. Sieve the egg mixture for smoother result.
  8. Pour egg mixture in a dish and place clams in it.
  9. Cover dish with foil.
  10. Steam till egg is set
  11. Serve.

  • Timing for steaming depends on how deep your dish is. I divided my egg mixture into 2 single portions and steamed them for 10 minutes.
  • Don't steam the clams for too long as you will be steaming them again with the egg mixture. The clams will be over cooked and will not be tender if you do so.

    This seems delicious, I really want to try it, but before I attempt to make it.. What type of stock do you recommend to use?
