Shijimi (Corbicula Clams)/シジミ

Japanese Food

I learned only yesterday from a TV show that shijimi can be frozen and that freezing shijimi increases their umami components. So,when I went shopping today, I just had to buy a pack of shijimi.

In Japan, shijimi are a common ingredient of miso soup. It is said that they are good for the liver, and are a cure for a hangover.
