John Dory Dashi Broth Base, 7.76 oz
What’s unique about this dashi broth base is that it features John Dory, a rare white fish caught offshore from the famous Hamada port in Shimane Prefecture. People usually enjoy John Dory’s flesh in deep-fried dishes, meunière, nabe hot pot, or sashimi, and its head, bones, and guts are thrown away. Shimane-based food wholesaler, Yoshitora, in collaboration with local manufacturers, developed a way to make use of the unused parts of the fish. The result is this exquisite dashi broth base! This extract of John Dory is mixed with other umami-rich ingredients, including bonito and Sodagatsuo (Auxis), in a perfect formula to produce a robust umami. Also, it is a rich source of Taurine, which has powerful antioxidant properties. The dashi broth base is so versatile that you don’t have to think about how to use it—just add it to whatever you’re cooking.
This dashi broth base has a robust umami and it effortlessly boosts the savoriness of dishes. You can instantly make restaurant quality miso soup by mixing this dashi broth base, miso, hot water, and your favorite toppings. It can also be added to nabe hot pot, simmered dishes, and soup noodles. It is great with egg dishes, such as dashimaki tamago (Japanese-style omelet), chawanmushi (Japanese-style savory egg custard), and oyakodon (egg and chicken over rice). You can even use it to marinate meat or add to hamburger/meatball mixes to enhance umami. Also recommended is trying it in a pasta sauce—you can add a Japanese twist instantly! Because of the tiny bonito flakes that sink to the bottom, please shake well before using.
