  • Summary

    These Thai-inspired clams are salty, tangy, and rich from the coconut milk. If you can’t find fresh lemongrass, substitute a couple of sliced garlic cloves and the grated zest from half a lime instead. The broth won't have quite the same flavor, but it will still taste terrific.

    Ingredients

    • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
    • 3 shallots, halved lengthwise and sliced
    • 1 stalk fresh lemongrass
    • 1/2 cup vegetable broth or chicken stock, preferably homemade
    • 1 (1-inch) piece of fresh ginger, peeled and cut into matchsticks
    • 2 jalapeño peppers, seeded and sliced
    • 2 tablespoons Asian fish sauce
    • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
    • 1/2 cup canned full-fat coconut milk (not refrigerated nondairy beverage)
    • 2 pounds clams, scrubbed
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
    • 1 scallion (white and green parts), chopped
    • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
    • 1 lime, cut into wedges, for squeezing
