Recipe #26: EGG SALAD SANDWICH

I know a lot of people who cannot fry an egg. For instance, a perfect sunny-side up: how do you make one without burning the edges or breaking the yolk. So here’s what I’ve been thinking — what if I create a few series devoted to our favorite ingredient, no?

I love eggs whichever way they’re prepared. I have to say that they’re one of the most versatile and most important ingredients in cooking and baking. Let me know what you think.

Recipe #25: KABYA (CLAM) SOUP

This is a popular type of clam locally known as kabya. I’m not sure if it’s the same thing as nylon shells, but the appearance seems identical. I love clams because their refreshing and nutritious. They’re known to be good sources of iron and other vitamins and minerals.

Now, when buying clams and mussels, make sure that they are alive. Shells of live clams are closed. If they’re open, they should close once you tap them. If they don’t close, that means they’re dead. Also, avoid clams with cracks on their shells. After cooking, fresh clams and mussels should open. If they don’t, that also means they’re dead. Discard them.

The recipe below is known simply as Kabya or Kabya Soup. Unlike clam chowders, it is simply cooked to create a tasty broth. Definitely one of my favorites.
