Heat the three oils in a large saucepan. Add the shallots, garlic, half the coriander, half the ginger and half the chilli and cook over a medium heat until the shallots have softened without colour. Add the wine and the bay leaves and increase the heat, bring to the boil and add the clams. Cover with a lid and cook over a brisk heat, shaking the pan from time to time for between 3 - 5 minutes or until the clams have opened. Remove opened clams and set aside. Return unopened clams to the heat and cook for a further 2 minutes. Discard any that fail to open. Strain the cooking juices into another saucepan and boil juices until they have reduced to about 4 tablespoons. Set aside to cool.
Meanwhile pre-heat oven to 175ºC / 350ºF/ Gas mark4. Lightly oil the French bread crostini both sides with olive oil and place in the oven on a baking sheet. Bake until golden and brittle. While the crostini are baking remove clams from the shells discarding the shells. Chop the clam flesh into small pieces and combine with the remaining coriander, ginger and chilli. Add the citrus rinds, the lime juice, spring onion and mint. Season to taste. Finally fold in the cooled cooking juices. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Arrange the clam mixture on the cooled crostini and serve with a rocket salad.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery.
