Coconut Lime Clams 1-22-13

Good evening friends!!

The coconut lime clams I had planed to make last night turned out to be WAY better than I expected.  It was so good, I'm really glad this made 4 servings because I can't wait to eat it again.

Coconut Lime Clams
1 lb clams on the half shell
1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 medium shallot, chopped
1 tsp ground turmeric
1 tbsp grated ginger
1/2 tsp ground cumin

1 can stewed tomatoes with green chilies
1 lime, juiced
1/2 c unsweetened coconut milk
1/2 c vegetable broth
3 cups frozen green beans
1/4 c shredded unsweetened coconut
In a skillet heat olive oil over medium heat, add shallots and cook until translucent.  Add ginger, turmeric, cumin and onions stir until makes a bright paste.  Add tomatoes, lime, coconut milk, vegetable broth.  Simmer 10 minutes.  Place green beans in bottom of baking dish, top with clams and pour sauce on top.  Sprinkle with coconut.  Cover and bake 350 for 20 minutes.  Remove lid and bake 10 minutes more.  Makes 4 servings.
