Tasty Stir-fry of Green Beans and Shrimp

It is a dish that tastes thorough with the “umami” of the rich “Shijimi” (Japanese freshwater clam) broth, making it highly satisfying even if the seasoning is light. By stir-frying, the vegetables and shrimp also give the broth, making this dish simple in flavor and allowing you to enjoy the taste of the ingredients.
