Dashi - Soup Stock

Dashi has been said to be the cornerstone of Japanese cooking and is possibly the most used ingredient in Japanese cooking. Beyond simply being stock for soup (miso soup for example), it also used to simmer vegetable, meat and fish and is the basis for many sauces like sukiyaki and tempura sauce. There are numerous varieties with the bonito fish style being the most popular. Other types of dashi are made with kelp, dried fish, dried shrimp, shiitake mushroom, scallops or in combitnation with these items. Pictured, are examples of the different types we carry. Please stop by and ask us about the use of dashi as you experience the world of Japanese cooking.
