灯台つぶやわらか漬け : Boiled Whelk with Soy Sauce
In order to preserve the flavor of the sea, its natural saltiness, and the softness of its flesh, the mussel is boiled and finished with a light soy sauce flavor.
This shellfish can be eaten in a few ways: as it is, as oden, or as grilled skewers for those who enjoy the original flavor of these molluscs.
Among the many types of mussel, the giant carapace mussel is mainly caught in Kushiro. It is called the "lighthouse mussel" because the shape of its shell resembles a lighthouse. When heated, the meat becomes soft and has a strong flavor.
