Put the lid on the pan and let the clams steam for three minutes, until they have opened. 5) Take the clams out of the pan and throw away any that have not opened. Take the rest of the clams from their shells. 6) Fry the clams in a splash of vegetable oil until a light golden-brown colour, with a pinch of salt. 7) Serve the clams with the oil and juices from the pan, the slices of the borage butter and the pine nuts and borage flowers.
