Steamed Razor Clams with Chili, Ginger and Vermouth

Posted by on Thursday, March 4, 2010, In : Night 




After the satisfying stodginess of the pot pie, I wanted something fresh and light. I'd been following and enjoying the fish related posts of a foodie friend, Biren, who does amazing Asian food, and my thoughts were turning to all the briny delights of the sea.

Providence was smiling down on me when I saw these plump, daisy fresh razor clams on a morning jaunt to the market. They were larger than the ones I'd eaten before and looked too tempting to pass by.

I've encountered this cocktail more than once, when island hopping around the Maldives.

The very sight of the cobalt coloured French liqueur, Alize Bleu, brings sunny St Tropez and its bevy of beautiful people to mind. When I was growing up, Brigitte Bardot was the femme du jour and a fixture of St Tropez.  I’ve lost count of the number of Bardot movies I’ve seen but they’ve definitely left their mark. The bright citrus, cherry and spice flavours coupled with the gorgeous blue of this delightful cocktail epitomises to me, the seductive charms of the French Riviera and the ...
