1111 reviews

This box contains 1kg of bonito flavoured soup stock, or dashi (as it is known in Japanese). Use with miso paste to make miso soup, or with soy sauce and red pepper to make jjigae. Can also be used in soup bases for noodle dishes. Highly versatile, dashi is one of the most essential seasonings used in Japanese cuisine.

ITEM ID: #15580


Dashi in Japanese cuisine is similar to chicken or vegetable stock in Western cuisines, as it is what provides the flavour base for many Japanese dishes. Authentic dashi made at home involves stewing umami-rich ingredients such as bonito fish, kombu kelp seaweed and shiitake mushrooms in water and allowing the flavours to infuse. If that seems too bothersome, then why not try some of the instant dashi items Japan Centre has to offer?

• Suimono Soup: Combine 1 tsp with 300ml water.

Use it for day-to-day cooking.\n\nQuality is good as far as I can tell.
Undoubtedly tasty and you can use for almost anything savory to make a robust base of taste.\nIt goes well with any vegetables, fishes, meats and you can combine this with other seasonings such as soy sauce and miso. Even simply pouring onto and mixing with boiled leafy vegetables, e.g., spinach, will make a healthy garnish with a great flavour.
Good flavour and great to be able to buy a larger quantity.
Wicked in risotto
Excellent products!
Ideally too big for individual but 500gm box would be nice
Perfect for fish dashi
Impossible to make truly the home taste of Japan without the broth flavoured with bonito (*** *** ***).
good way to get the dashi stock and convenient
Good value in the economy pack.
