---------------------------------
Hamaguri no Osuimono (Common Orient Clam Clear Soup)

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 10min
Number of servings: 3

Ingredients:
3 Hamaguri (common orient clam)
diced Kinugoshi-dofu (silken tofu)
Umefu (or Kamaboko fish cake)
Mitsuba (Japanese wild parsley)
60ml Yamaki Kappo Shiro Dashi (White Dashi)
540ml water
*Umefu is made from wheat gluten, very sticky like mochi

Directions:
1. If your clams have some sand in them, place the clams in a dark container and fill it with salted water (as salty as sea water). And let sit for several hours. The clams push salt water and sand out of their shells. Then drain well.
2. Put water and Yamaki Kappo Shiro Dashi (White Dashi) in a pot, then bring to a boil. Place Hamaguri, when they are open, add Umefu and Tofu, then simmer for a few seconds.
3. Serve in a dish and garnish with Mitsuba.
