Make the poaching liquid: In a medium pot, over medium heat, add the chicken broth. Bring to a boil and add the soy, ginger, star anise, fish sauce, and orange peel. Reduce the heat and simmer until the broth absorbs the seasonings, about 15 minutes. Strain and keep the broth over low heat.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over medium heat. Add the bok choy and blanch for no more than 1 or 2 minutes. Remove the bok choy from the water and immediately plunge it into a bowl of ice water to shock it and stop the cooking. When cool, drain and set aside. Finely chop the green onion and cut the shiitake mushrooms into julienne slices. Slice the nori into thin strips.

Put a medium skillet over medium-high heat and add the vegetable oil. Add the shrimp to the hot oil for about 1 minute per side, just until they turn pink. Put the shrimp and clams into the hot poaching liquid and poach them for about 2 minutes. Add the bok choy and mushrooms and cook for 1 minute more.

Remove shrimp and clams from the broth and put them into a shallow bowl. Surround them with the bok choy and shiitakes. Pour 1 or 2 ladles of broth over the dish and garnish with chopped green onion and nori strips.
