Manila Clam Rice

Manila Clam Rice

Featuring plenty of the rich flavor of manila clams. I recommend this for a dish your kids will want more of.

Ingredients: 3 rice cooker cups worth (540 ml uncooked)

Manila clams
350-400 g
Uncooked white rice
3 rice cooker cups worth (540 ml uncooked)
Sake
100 ml
Carrot
1/2-1
Flavoring ingredients:
Soy sauce
2 teaspoons
Salt
1/4-1/2 teaspoon
Garnish
Thinly sliced green onion
as desired

Steps

1. Wash the rice and drain in a strainer (for at least 30 minutes). Remove the sand from the clams and wash. Mince the carrots.
2. Add the clams and the sake to a frying pan. Cover with a lid and cook until the clams open. Once they've opened, separate the meat and the clam juices.
3. Add the rice from Step 1, and the clam juices from Step 2 to the rice cooker. Then add the flavoring ingredients and enough water to reach the 3 cups mark.
4. Add the minced carrots to Step 3 and turn on your rice cooker!
5. Once the rice has finished cooking, add the clams and mix. Serve in rice bowls, sprinkle with thinly sliced green onions, and it's complete.
