The original recipe for this dish is made with Mussels ,but,I like the combination of Mussels,oysters and clams. This recipe is courtsey of THe Foods Of China .

Cilantro leaf (optional)
Bring a wok full of water to a boil. Put in shellfish and cook until the shells open. Remove,drain and discard one side of the shell.Put the half shell with the mussel attached on a plate. MAYBE PREPARED AHEAD OF TIME AND REFRIDGERATED TILL READY TO USE.
Slice half the garlic and fry gently in oil until crisp and golden.Drain and set aside. Chop the remaining garlic very finely and scatter a little over each shellfish. Sprinkle them with chicken stock powder,sugar and soy sauce. Put inside a steamer and cook over high heat for 3 minutes.

I love using crab as often ,rather than cooking it myself, I buy precooked lump crab meat. This is such a convienent product to buy,but ,be careful and do pick it over prior to using. This recipe uses rice noodle. Another pantry favorite,it is sold dry and needs to be rehydrated and drained prior to using.
2 tablespoons oil
1 garlic clove,finely chopped
1 teaspoon red curry paste
4 oz crabmeat
1 egg,lightly beaten
8 oz rice vermicelli,soaked in water 20 minutes and drained
1 cup bean sprouts
3 scallions,thinly sliced
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
1 large fresh red chili,chopped
2 tablespoons lime juice
Heat oil in a wok and fry the garlic until golden brown. Add the remaining ingredients one at a time,stirring well between each addition. Cook for another minute or two,then turn into a serving plate and serve.
