Asari shellfish and tagliatelle



A colorful pasta, veggie, seafood one-dish meal.


Tagliatelle made with durum semolina plus a little matcha green tea powder.


Asari shellfish.


Cooked with garlic, chili, white wine, tomato paste…


…konnyaku, capers, favas (broad beans)


… stalks on mitsuba. The leaves decorate the serving plate.


Asari clam champon

That’s the season for those small asari clams… So dinner is the champon noodle in soup fiesta…

Chinese egg noodles, stir-fried with bacon. Big veggie volume : new onion, mizuna, tomato.

The shellfish opened in a mix of white miso, water and shochu. A little ginger.

Voila : customised Kyushu style Chinese noodles.
Quick, easy and so tasty.

Spicy boat

Asari clams in a spicy soup.

The base is a Thai tom yum soup, from paste. With the shellfish, onion, green pepper, wonton sheets. I added a few rice noodles forgotten in their package, too few for a dish.

With the rest of my “field” of broccoli sprouts.

Served with hot moffles (mochi waffles).

Asari and douchi hot duet (black bean shellfish sauce)

A superb sauce to change my plain old pasta.

I have enjoyed the shellfish and douchi sauces in Singapore. I don’t have their recipe, so I invented mine.

Chili and douchi Chinese fermented black beans.

Onion, tomato, a few douchi (they are VERY salty), chili…simmered in a little oil. Slightly mixed.

Added Chinese aged “wine”, then the asari clams.
