A Classic Dish for Doll's Festival Clear Soup with Nanohana and Hamaguri Clams

This is the clear hamaguri soup that I make every year, without fail, for our Doll's Festival celebrations.

Hamaguri clams
100 g
Broccolini
2
Water
200 ml
Kombu
5 cm square
● Sake
1 tablespoon
● Soy sauce
1 teaspoon
● Salt
a small amount

Steps

1. Degrit the hamaguri clams by soaking them in lightly salted water. Rinse well by rubbing them together under water. Roughly chop the nanohana.
2. Put the water in a pot, and soak the kombu for about 30 minutes. Add the hamaguri clams, then heat over low heat and remove the kombu right before it comes to a boil.
3. Skim off the scum, simmer until the clams open, add the nanohana until tender, then season with the ● ingredients.
