Tasty Tips

Fresh clams need to be purged, or cleaned, before cooking. Discard any clams with chipped or cracked shells. Place clams in a bowl and cover with cool tap water. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight. Discard soaking water and any grit or sand. Scrub the outer shells with a stiff brush and rinse well before using.

Doenjang is a savory and salty fermented Korean soybean paste. Substitute miso paste for doenjang. Doenjang is available at your local Asian market or online.
