3 tablespoons Minced green onion
1 tablespoon Minced garlic
2 tablespoons Red pepper powder
2 tablespoons Sesame seed powder
1 tablespoon Sesame oil
½ tablespoon Red pepper threads


(1) Clean cockles in water, rubbing hard. Place in weak salted water for 3 hours to remove sands. (2) Mix soy sauce, minced green onion and minced garlic, red pepper powder, sesame seed powder and sesame oil together for seasoning sauce. Cut red pepper threads in ¾-inch pieces.

Sprinkle seasoning sauce evenly on cockles, sprinkle with red pepper threads, and steam dish in steamer for 3 minutes.

: by Bok Ryou Han Note: * Since cockles are perishable, use live ones. Live ones move when you open shells. Use knife to open shells. * In order to remove dirt and sand from cockles, place them in weak salted water and leave them in dark place for 3 hours. *Be careful not to overcook cockles since they shrink easily.
