Dashi (fish broth) Recipe – Japanese Cooking 101. Dashi or fish broth is a very important component in traditional Japanese cooking. It is used in soups, stews, boiled vegetables and many other dishes. It is not hard to make at all, but it is one step you have to take before you cook food. Today a lot of Japanese people use powdered dashi as a shortcut (similar to bouillon cubes). However, powdered dashi is not as flavorful as the real thing, and it usually contains MSG. So, here at Japanese Cooking 101, we cook Dashi in a more traditional way using dried bonito flakes (katsuobushi). Dried bonito flakes can be easily found at Japanese supermarkets or online stores.

You can use the bonito flakes not only for Dashi but also for sprinkling on other dishes like okonomiyaki (Japanese pancake, yum!). So don’t worry, you won’t waste them after you make Miso Soup once.

Serve it over a bed of egg noodles, and garnish the dish with fresh dill to really make the flavors pop.
