Seaweed is not commonly used in Western cuisine, but in many types of Eastern cooking, including Japanese cuisine, it is an invaluable source of umami/savoury flavor and hearty texture. Kombu kelp seaweed is one of the most commonly utilised seaweeds in Japanese cuisine, as it is one of the main ingredients in dashi soup stock. Take a look at Japan Centre’s Seaweed section for a great range of seaweed items.
How To Use
• Heat up a sheet of kombu in a pot of water until just before boiling.
• Remove from heat and add katsuobushi bonito flakes.
• Strain out the kombu and katsuobushi for smooth liquid dashi.
