  1. Cut the naga-negi diagonally into 1-cm slices. Shred the ginger thinly into “hari-shoga.”

  3. Serve the miso soup in bowls with the hari-shoga on top and ichimi-togarashi sprinkled to taste.

★ A Note

You can obtain fresh horse mackerels and mince them by yourself to make an especially good tsumire-jiru.
