Simple food : Clam + Linguine

Friday, September 14, 2012

Sometime I am an impulsive shopper, this also include when I visited grocery. There is one grocery near by my daughter day care that I love to go, they normally have fresh meats and fishes daily. They also have frequent promotion on certain fresh ingredient. I found this bunch of Kambah (local clam) that look so inviting and it's on promotion. I quickly bought them for USD1.5 only..haaa...

When I got home, I thought for a while what should  I do with these clams. I never handle nor cook them before, and they are alive, making noises. Oh well, they are still ended it up in my tummy :).
So happened I have left over linguine at my fridge. Then I thought may be I just cook them with left over linguine. So here they are....

This is my first time to cook them and taste quiet delish! oh, and  I thought I bought the clams too much, but some said we should buy more than what we need because we will find those close one that should not be eaten.
