Lusog Notes

This dish is rich in calcium and iron. Calcium is important in the formation and maintenance of strong bones and teeth. On the other hand, iron is needed to make red blood cells that carry oxygen around the body.

Chef`s Tip

Discard any clams that remain open when tapped. These are dead clams that are not safe to eat.
