    Miso Soup With Sea ShellsIt is really nice to start off your meal with a soup. Japanese Sushi Restaurants have many different types of soup. Miso Soup is excellent. Miso Soup with sea shells is even better. If you have trouble taking the meat off the sea shell without splashing your soup everywhere and making a mess, just pick up the entire shell, then use your hands to bite off the meat, and discard your empty sea shell onto an empty plate of sushi. 

    Miso Soup is of excellent quality when it forms clouds. Just look at this example of soup with sea shells in the picture above. See that cloudiness, it is a sign that high quality miso paste was used and that is was cooked properly. It's all about temperature control during the initial cooking, and the quick controlled boil during the finish. Miso soup can be made in 5 minutes if you are in a hurry. Just boil water, then lower to medium temperature, add your miso paste through a small metal strainer (you can just use a spoon with a spoonful of miso paste, but you will get climbs that you will have to remove later, but if you have no strainer, go for it). Once the paste is mixed, add your firm silken tofu (or what ever tofu you have that is not expired). If you like lots of tofu, then add more, if not, then a few small pieces will do perfectly per soup bowl that you are making. Bring to a rapid boil for 20 seconds on high heat, then turn off the heat. I like to add green onions at the end.

    If you are making Miso Soup with Sea Shells, be careful! You need to make sure you clean and rinse off any sand before placing them into your soup. You also need to be very careful when stirring your shells, so that you do not crush them into small pieces that will ruin your soup because you can bite into a piece of shell and hurt your teeth badly! So be careful.

    Sand in your sea shells is a massive problem when dealing with sea shell soup. You must first clean off any sand from the outside of the shells. Once this is done, you soak them in sea water at room temperature. Once the sea shells think they are back home in the ocean, they will feel comfortable and open themselves up, and they should clean out any sand stuck inside during this process.

    REMEMBER IF YOUR SEA SHELL DOES NOT OPEN ON ITS OWN WHEN BEING COOKED, IT IS DEAD AND CAN GIVE YOU FOOD POISONING. Do not eat any shells in your soup that are unopened.
