    Hey Jude's Note:

    This is a Bob Chinn's Restaurant recipe found in the Chicago Sun-Times. While I haven't made this recipe, I've had this dish at his restaurant and it's outstanding. I plan to try this soon. Prep and cook times are approximate.

    1. 1

    2. 2
      Place in a bowl, cover with cold water, sprinkle with cornmeal and salt.
    3. 3
      let stand 1 hour, then rinse and drain.
    4. 4
      Place the clams in a single layer in a steamer over a pan or wok of boiling water and steam until the shells just open, about 3 to 5 minutes.
    5. 5
      Remove the steamer from the wok immediately; do not overcook the clams.
    6. 6
      Heat corn oil in a deep saucepan or wok over medium heat.
    7. 7
      When the oil is hot but not smoking, stir in ginger, black beans, onion and garlic.
    8. 8
      Cook until the onion and garlic are golden brown, about 3 to 5 minutes.
    9. 9
      Stir in the stock, cook 2 minutes more.
    10. 10
      In a small bowl, slowly add 1 cup water to cornstarch and stir until smooth.
    11. 11
      Slowly add half of the cornstarch mixture to the wok and bring mixture to a boil.

      This is a wonderful, classic Chinese seafood dish. Omit steps 2 and 3. They are unnecessary. Prolong step 16 until everything is boiling hot. Jim
