In another receptacle, open six clams in 1/2 cup water over a hot fire.

Jiggle and shake the casserole to blend.
Add the peas and asparagus tips.
Season with salt and shake casserole to blend.
When the sauce has taken on the consistency of a cream sauce, put the yolk of an egg in a cup, add to it 1 tb of the juice from the can of asparagus, and mix it with a fork.
Remove casserole from fire.
Empty contents of cup over casserole and immediately lift casserole and swirl and shake it from side to side to blend the egg yolk with the sauce quickly.
The dish is now ready to serve.
