"Clams prepared this way always garner standing ovations from my guests. Little do they know that it is a very fast and uncomplicated dish to prepare. For that reason and of course for it's delicious taste, I love making this dish."
Heat a large heavy-bottomed pan or wok over high heat; add the oil and wait 1 minute more. Mix garlic into the hot oil and cook until it just turns golden brown, about 1 minute. Add clams and chile paste; stir until clams are coated.
Stir fish sauce, chiles, and sugar into clams; cook and stir until the clams have opened, 5 to 10 minutes.
Mix basil into clam mixture and cook until wilted, about 1 minute.
Assess the amount of clams in comparison to the size of your largest heavy-bottomed pan or wok. The clams should have ample space, so if your pan seems too small, split the amounts in half and fry in 2 rounds. I will give instructions for the whole recipe at once.
