PUTIEN @Jewel – DUOTOU Clam Season 2019 [MEDIA INVITE]

Baked DUOTOU Clam on Hot Plate


PUTIEN DUOTOU Clams is back at PUTIEN. With a staggering amount of 80 tons of DUOTOU Clams sold worldwide last year, you can expect this crowd-pleaser to generate more interest this year. 

This year PUTIEN culinary team will be serving DUOTOU Clams in eight different ways. Stir-fried Sambal Chives with DUOTOU Clam ($22.80) and Thai-flavoured DUOTOU Clam ($21.80) are two new dishes created for this year. The sambal is fragrant, tasted close to the traditional XO sauce. The sambal binds the tasty chives with the freshness of the DUOTOU clams nicely.

Meanwhile, Thai-Flavoured DUOTOU Clam is more like a salad. DUOTOU clams mixed with cucumber, mango, shallots, onions, peanuts and homemade Thai Sweet Chilli dressing.  It is refreshing indeed.

Thai-Flavoured DUOTOU Clam Ingredients

Baked DUOTOU Clam on Hot Plate ($21.80). The best-selling dish for three consecutive years. The DUOTOU Clams are steamed on the bed of sea salt. I tried it two different ways, first I just ate the clam on its own, as you can taste the subtle sweetness of the clam. The second way is to dip it with a touch of salt, where you can taste the brainy flavour of the clams, and enjoy the flavours of the sea.

Steamed DUOTOU Clam with Wine ($22.80). The clams are packed in double boiled soup bowl and steamed with Chinese Huadiao Wine. The wine helps to accentuate the flavour of the clams and add sweetness to it.

DUOTOU Clam Omelette ($22.80). Reminds me of Or Luak. The juicy and springy texture of the DUOTOU clams bodes well with the velvety egg texture and spring onion. Feels like a comfort dish and a good way to introduce the clams to kids.

Salted Spicy DUOTOU Clam ($22.80). The clams are lightly battered with chopped chilli, salt and pepper. The crispy exterior, juicy flesh plus chilli salt pepper seasoning sure making this dish a crowd pleaser.

Steamed DUOTOU Clam with Minced Garlic ($19.80). One of the most common steaming methods of seafood with shells. It infused the clams with the sweetness of the garlic and umami flavour from the soy sauce. Good to have with rice.

Stir-Fried DUOTOU Clam with Ginger & Spring Onion ($21.80). One of my favourite dishes of the evening. It is fragrant and juicy, plus the gravy is just so delicious.

The PUTIEN Bian Rou soup ($4.90) is a Fujianese speciality with more than 500 years of history. The dumpling wrapper is made from pork meat, filled with more pork feelings. It is meaty, springy and swimming in robust tangy broth filled with seaweed.

‘100-Second’ Stewed Yellow Croaker ($14.90). It comes with three versions now. The original, tomato and sambal. Each one of them has its own interesting flavour, and yet the yellow croakers remain perfectly steamed.

PUTIEN Sweet & Sour Pork with Lychees ($14.90). Crispy exterior with juicy and succulent pork internally. The combination of tomato sauce and sweetness of the lychee made this a very appetizing dish. I was hoping the portion can be bigger.
