Clams in white wine broth.

A simple recipe by Packrat. (After desperately trying to recreate the dish from Big Fish)

Fry chopped up garlic in a dash of olive oil till golden.
Toss in chopped up chilli padi according to tolerance level.
Fry till teary. (you that is...)
Pour in clean clams ~ 1-2kg
Drown in white wine ~ 250 mls. You can drink the rest while choking on the resultant fumes.
Shake in salt to taste.
Bring to boil and turn off heat when most clams are open.

Serve with bread to dip.

sounds good, you just need to add the standard disclaimer on how to weed out the bad clams to make it complete.

before cooking -- toss out any clams that are open (test open clams with a couple of taps to see if they close up)
after cooking -- toss out any clams that are closed
