Dashi is a fish stock made from dried bonito fish simmered
in water to extract the flavor. A dashi powder is available
that dissolves in boiling water and is easy for making small
or large amounts of stock. To make a small quantity, use about
½ teaspoon of dashi granules to ¾ cup of boiled
water. Mix dashi, soy sauce and lemon juice together in a
jar. When ready to serve, pour a small amount on albacore
Dashi is also used in miso soup and other simmering dishes
such as noodle cooking stock.
