I love clams, as you know clams clean the water by filter feeding and they also taste darn good, but they are alive when we eat and cook them and that’s just wrong. Not to mention their job is vital in this world.
As you know I have lived a long part of my life in Baja and here they sell the most delicious Cocktails. So this recipe helps when I’m hankering for some Clam Cocktail. It might not look the same but it taste great and the texture of the mushrooms kind of feels like clam chunks.
A large can of slice mushroom. (Not fresh)
1 cucumber (medium size)
1/8 of a cup of onion (medium size)
1 large tomatoes.
Half a cup of chopped fresh coriander/cilantro(or less if you’re not a big fan)
1 1/2 tablespoons of ketchup
1 cup of V8
1 teaspoon of soy sauce
A pinch of salt and pepper
A splash of pourable hot sauce, I use Valentina(optional)
Chop cucumber, tomatoes cilantro, and onion. Place it all in a big bowl then add ketchup, soy sauce and mushrooms and salt and pepper, mix it all. Squeeze the lemon and add the lemon juice. Finally add the V8 and hot sauce and serve with soda crackers or tostadas. Provecho.
