* Basic * Shijimi Clam Miso Soup *

This shijimi clam miso soup is simple, and yet really tasty.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Shijimi clams (basket or freshwater clams)
150 g
2 cups
1 1/2 tablespoon
Green onions (finely sliced)


1. Rub the shells of the shijimi clams together to remove any dirt. Finely chop the green onions.
2. Pour the water and the shijimi clams into a pot over high heat. When it boils, turn down the heat to low or medium and cook as you skim off the scum that rises to the surface.
3. After the clams open up, lower the heat and mix in the miso. Dish it up, and scatter some green onions.
