  • 5.3 oz. (150 g) daikon radish, peeled and cut in 1/2″ slices and 2″ lengths
  • 4 1/4 c. (1,000 cc) water
  • 0.7 oz. (20 g) bonito flakes
  • 2.3 oz. (65 g) Nama Koji Miso
  • 1.8 oz. (50 g) carrots, peeled and cut in 1/2″ slices and 2″ lengths
  • 0.4 oz. (10 g) aburaage (fried tofu)
  • 2 pcs. shiitake mushrooms, sliced and blanched
  • 6 satoimo yam, peeled
  • 7 oz. (200g) salmon fillets
  • 4 large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • Seri (water dropwort), cut in 1″ pieces for garnish


Step One

Put 4 1/4 cups of water and radish slices into a pot and cook until tender. Remove radish and set aside.

Step Two

Add bonito flakes to the pot of water and cook for 10 seconds. Spread a wet paper towel over a colander (first wring out excess water from towel) and strain the liquid. Pour the liquid into a large pot, add the Nama Koji Miso, and stir to dissolve. Set aside.

Step Three

Cover carrots with water in another pot and cook until tender. Drain carrots in a colander and discard the water.

Step Four

In another pot, heat water (or reserved rice rinsed water, if possible) and cook the satoimo yam until soft. Slice 4 of the pieces and set aside. Make the other 2 pieces of yam into a paste by using a strainer. Add the yam paste into the miso soup mixture.

Step Five

To remove the excess oil from the aburaage, place it into a strainer and pour boiling water over the fried tofu. Cut the aburaage into 1/2″ slices and 2″ lengths.

Step Six

Sprinkle salt over the salmon fillets and cook only one side in a non-stick skillet. Then place the salmon and shrimp into a steamer and cook for 1 minute.

Step Seven

Transfer all prepared vegetables, aburaage, salmon and shrimp into the Miso soup mixture and heat until it starts to boil.

Step Eight

Pour equal amounts of soup into 4 bowls. Garnish with seri.
