  • Cockles, enough for 2 people (ask you fishmonger for advice)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut cream or a shaving from a block of coconut, reconstituted in a little hot water




  1. Add the paste items ot a mortar and pestle or a food processor and blend to a paste
  2. Stir fry the paste in a wok for a minute or so, just to take the 'edge off'
  3. Stir in the coconut cream
  4. Drop the cockles into boiling water for just a minute and drain. Discard any that have not opened
  5. Add the cockles to the paste in the wok, add a dash of soy sauce and the spring onions, mix well and serve immediately

Peeling ginger

There is no need to peel ginger. As a result of attending a Thai cookery demo, we have learnt that peeling ginger is unnecessary unless for aesthetic purposes as the skin is high in fibre and full of flavour. However, do remove any bits that have become tough or woody.
