Classic Japanese flavour.

Perfect the base flavour in all of your Japanese cooking with Shimaya's bonito dashi stock.

ITEM ID: #959

Background

Dashi is a hugely important ingredient in Japanese cooking, as it is what provides the flavour base for the vast majority of traditional Japanese dishes. Proper home-made dashi is made by allowing bonito fish flakes, kombu kelp seaweed, and/or other ingredients rich in umami to infuse in water. Nowadays many Japanese people prefer the convenience of powdered dashi. For a great range of dashi ingredients and instant dashi mixes, check out Japan Centre's Dashi & Noodle Stock section.

How To Use

• Miso Soup: 1 sachet of dashi, 4-5 cups of water and 4 tablespoons of miso paste makes 4-5 servings.
• Noodle Soup: 2 sachets of dashi, 5 cups of water and soy sauce makes 3 servings.

Quality is great as would expect from a Japanese Center, \nI bought it for the purpose to prepare a row fish eggs ( ikura) \nIt is a not common to ever find in the local shops, so have to be ordered from a specialist \nI could recommend it for Japanese recipes. \n???????????
