  1. Pour oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. When hot, lightly brown a piece of shallot, add the rest and fry until golden brown. Drain shallots, place on paper towel and season with salt. Set aside. Pour oil from pan through a strainer into a large sauté pan. Add garlic and sauté on medium until golden. Add clams and wine; after a minute, turn clams. Cover and steam until clams open, about 5 minutes. Transfer clams to soup plates, draining juices back into pan.
  2. Whisk sesame oil, lime juice, honey, sriracha and sesame seeds into pan. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Adjust sriracha as desired. Bring to a simmer and pour over clams. Scatter scallions and fried shallots on top. Serve with crusty bread.
