To remove sand from clams, soak into salted water,as salty as seawater, and cover. Leave it for 30minutes or so to let the clams spit out all the sand remained inside shells.

I’m using concentrated soba tsuyu. You can use any type of soba tsuyu.



11. Add some sake.

Adding sake can give you nice fermented rice aroma.



12. Add water.

If you want to enjoy with lots of soup, you can increase water.



13. Turn on the stove. After bringing it to the boil,cover the pot and keep steaming on low heat for about 2~3 minutes

Try not to cook too long. All the materials can be cooked very quickly. As soon as you see clams’ shells are all opened, you can shut off the stove.



14. when it’s cook you can sprinkle some black pepper and nanami powder if you have.

15. Don’t miss out the konbu placed on the top! That can become a very good garnish! Shred it and put on the top when serving.

This dish has highly concentrated seafood & vegetable juice. You can also mix with pasta, that makes tasty Wa-fu seafood spaghetti!
