如何清洗象拔蚌


Steps | 做法 :

  1. 購買象拔蚌時,檔主通常會問是否需要給象拔蚌劏洗。保持象拔蚌的鮮味,我會選擇回家先行放入雪櫃,開始烹煮之前才拿出來劏洗。這樣除了可以保持鮮味外,還可以防止因劏洗之後又未能適時烹煮而令肉質失水。
  2. 首先用廚房剪刀剪開象拔蚌頭尾兩端,佐以生果刀除去黑色和啡色的內臟。用少許玉米粉和水,輕手捽走潺污,然後開上自來水,一只一只的洗乾淨,用廚房紙抺乾備用。
  1. Most clam sellers would have cleaned the baby geoduck clams. For me, I prefer cleaning them home just before cooking. This not only keeps its freshness but also reduces texture shrinkage.
  2. Slit open both ends of baby geoduck clams with kitchen shears, with also the help of a fruit knife, remove dark and brown guts. Rub them with corn starch and little water then wash one by one in slow running water. Drain, set aside for use. Avoid soaking them in the basin.
