I was watching this Japanese variety show and the chef cooked this dish. It looked very easy to cook and I did a research using Google. And indeed, I managed to find the Japanese version Sake Steamed Clams recipe. However, instead of using sake, I made use of my left over white wine. Well, I believe that the taste will be different as white wine is of a stronger taste as compared to sake. I will probably try the real sake version, once I managed to find the sake I like. 🙂
