Quick Fix |
Dashi is a traditional Japanese soup
stock made with dried bonito fish flakes. This recipe is for a
very simple dashi with a very light fish flavor. For a stronger flavored
broth, add another 1/4 cup of bonito flakes at the end, bring the stock
back up to a simmer and cook for another 5 minutes.
¼ cup dried bonito flakes
2 cups water
1 piece kombu (sea kelp)
1. Add the kombu to the water;
bring to a boil.
2. Remove kombu, turn off heat and
add bonito flakes. Do not stir.
3. When the flakes sink to the
bottom (approx. 5-7 minutes), strain through sieve.
