Shell-fish browned with Chilli sauce



The ốc đĩa is a small flat shell-fish (đĩa means plate in Vietnamese). It is cleaned, placed in a pot without water and then boiled in chilli sauce. It is cooked without fat, and only with a sprinkling of sliced lemon. It is often eaten with some Diếp Cá or basil leaves, and usually as a side-dish with some beer.
