Lala with Thai Chilli Sauce

This past 2 days my wife & I have "selera seafood".
Just yesterday we had mussel, scallop & prawn farfalle bolognese. 
Today we have our fourth species of shellfish: "lala" (baby clam)
It's my wife's turn to cook. She has the knack for cooking but unfortunately not the enthusiasm!
She cooks by following recipes from a photo recipe book but every dish turns out FAB!

1 kg fresh lala
2 inch young ginger
4 red chillies (or if u like add a bit of chilli padi for more HEAT!)
10 cloves garlic
10 shallots
2 tsp Thai chilli sauce
2 tbs oyster sauce
a bit of vinegar

Add salt and vinegar in container of water.
Immerse lala in water to cleanse the mud.
Clean lala afterwards.
Saute chopped ginger, chillies, garlic & onions till fragrant.
Add lala & cook at high heat for 15 minutes.
Then add Thai chilli sauce & oyster sauce.
Fry till sauce thickens.

When it's cooked with love, it'll turn out FAB anytime mate. Especially done by that person we love, the missus.

Nice pics all, I must say. Bet both of you are passionate cooks with lotsa patience. To be able to snap them pics after the grueling grilling at the stove.
