Seasoned Cockle Clams
꼬막찜

 

Kkomakjim is a popular seafood delicacy widely enjoyed by Koreans all year around but especially during the summer season. It is comprised of small edible, saltwater cockle clams that are thoroughly cleaned and steamed, then individually topped with a soy sauce-based seasoning. The sauce can contain vegetables such as finely chopped red & green chili peppers, green onions, and minced garlic mixed in with gochugaru, sugar, sesame seed and sesame oil. Its individual taste will definitely awaken your palates for some great seafood that has a sweet and sour kick to each bite.

  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbs sugar
  • 1 tbs gochugaru (red chili pepper flakes)
  • 1 tbs sesame oil
  • 1 tbs sesame seeds
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1-2 stalk green onion(s)
  • 1 red chili pepper
  • 1 green chili pepper
Recipe Ingredients

  • 8 cups water
  • 2 tbsp coarse sea salt

Cooking Directions
  1. Clean individual cockles with a brush under running cold water. Discard those that have crushed or broken shells.
