Ark Shell Sushi
Arc shell is translated
as "red clam" or akagai
for its red flesh. It is high in hemoglobin and therefore gets
When preparing, the clam is shucked and then the valves, and organs are
and discarded, but the exterior mantle (membrane that surrounds the
clam's body) is saved.The flesh is then scrubbed with salt to rid the
fluid. After this, the color of the arc shell becomes pink. The flesh
butterflied and prepared into a nigiri.
arc shell has a deep flavor. It's aromas are strong, but it is not
overpowering. It is also very chewy, but soft enough to bite through.
If the exterior mantle (Himo,
meaning string) of the arc shell is thick
enough, then it is used for sushi
as well. The mantle is someties tastier than the clam itself. It is
crunchy and concentrated in flavors.
