Pattaya Stir Fry Clams

Lala Masak Pattaya

This delectable dish is light on the tongue and dressed with a creamy sauce. Touched with lime juice and lemon grass, it is in the character of Thai cooking, using a wok to seal in juices and food flavors, and to crisp up vegetables. The trick is to bring the oil to high heat quickly, add clams, then vegetables, and keep the food moving by constant rocking of the wok. You can also use a spatula with a rounded edge, or a net spoon to keep foods moving.
