Here is another Filipino seafood recipe for you. This time, we will be having an authentic Filipino soup dish that can surely captivate your taste. What I have for you below is a very simple and basic Tinolang Halaan Filipino recipe (see also Tinolang Manok) that every person who loves and wants to cook can follow easily.
Note: Make sure that the clams are already cleansed and the dirt are already flushed out of its shell before proceeding. To do this, pour the clams in a container or basin full of water and let it sit for at least half day to make it (the clams) expel sand.
Tinolang Halaan Ingredients:
* 2 1/2 kilo halaan (clams)
* 2-3 stalk leech leaves, cut 2” diagonally
* 1-2 stalk tanglad (lemon grass)
* 1 pc. thumb size ginger, sliced into strips
* 1/2 head garlic, chopped
* 1 pc. medium size onion, sliced
* 2 tbsp. cooking oil
Tinolang Halaan Cooking Instruction:
1). Boil 2 cups of water with tanglad, set aside.
2). Sauté garlic and ginger together in a pot or wok, then add sliced onion.
3). Pour about 1 – 2 cups of prepared tanglad water. Bring to a boil.
4). Add clams and allow water to boil once more. Simmer until the clam shells open halfway.
5). Add leech and simmer for another 30-45 seconds then turn off the heat.
Enjoy! Best serve while its hot.
