Dashi is a fish-based stock which forms the base of lots of Japanese soups and dipping sauces. Although it’s possible to make your own dashi stock using dried seaweed or bonito flakes, this is the quickest and easiest way – simply stir one of the ten sachets in a pan of hot water until the powder has dissolved.
Instant dashi powder is a great store cupboard ingredient for keen Japanese cooks. Add miso, seaweed, noodles or soy to a steaming bowl of dashi for a delicious and healthy broth. Or let the dashi-flavoured stock cool, and mix with rice wine vinegar, mirin and soy for dressings, sauces and marinades.
