I Called It My Weird Lunch

BUT I LIKE IT... 

Saw something I like at the fish stall in the market.... Clams!!  There are only two fish stalls in this dry market here in Canning.  Their prices are slightly higher than those sold in bigger markets but I like coming here because it has less people and cleaner environment.  So their prices is more or less justified, pay a bit more to avoid the crowd.  

It has been a long while since I cook this type of clams, they are difficult to find too.  I only come across those heavy black clams which I don't really like, I prefer this type of longish clams.... hahaha... do they have a name?  Anyway, I ended up buying RM12, which is slightly more than 500gms.  

I couldn't remember how many times I washed them till the water turned clear... Soaked them with salt water too and then when all is ready, I get to cooking them.  Chopped up some garlic, ginger and cilipadi, plucked lots of basil from the garden and all is good to go!

Flesh is fresh.... 
Tasty and Yummy!
And the above was my lunch... Rice-less...
Greens, seafood and African grapes!
This is what I called a Weird Lunch!

  4. Yummy clams. Doesn't matter, as long as you enjoy your weird lunch. At first glance, those black thing do not look like grapes.

DESSERTS OVER... THE MAIN MEAL CAME... It should be the other way round but knowing us, desserts would go to waste after this main meal.  So...
