Pippies (or clams) with semolina pasta & lemon myrtle – Paper Daisy, Halcyon House, NSW

Cabarita beach, the town our restaurant is in, has been known as a fertile area for pippies. They are something that we always have on our menu in some way. They can be treated like mussels or clams, but they have a more mild sweet flavour, and the cooking juice will make a great sauce.

Servings 2 servings

Ingredients
  

Pasta Dough

  • 180 g semolina
  • 180 g plain flour
  • 120 ml water
  • 20 ml macadamia oil
  • 5 g salt

Dish

  • 300 g pippies
  • 120 g pasta
  • 60 ml white wine
  • 50 ml macadamia oil
  • 3 leaves of lemon myrtle
  • 25 g butter
  • Native pepper
  • 100 g warrigal green or pea tendril

Instructions
 

Pasta Dough

  • Combine the ingredients to make a smooth dough, and then leave it to rest for 20 min on the bench, covered. Roll out using a pasta machine to the thickness you prefer, I use a pasta extruded to make bucatini, but fettuccini, papadelle or tagliatelle work well also. Allow the pasta to dry slightly at room temperature, be sure that they aren’t touching or sticking together.

Dish

  • Wash the pippies, and soak in iced water for 20min, just to be sure they have been purged of all sand. Boil salted water in a pot big enough for all of the pasta, start cooking the pasta. Heat a pan with a lid over a medium heat, add in the macadamia oil, lemon myrtle, pepper. Add the pippies and immediately add the wine then cover the pan. Let it cook for 30-60 seconds until the pippies have opened up, reduce the heat to low, add in the warrigal green and butter, and a pinch of salt, mix to combine and create a sauce. Drain the pasta and then add it to the sauce, combine and serve.
