As anyone who has ever tasted it will testify, a well made Dashi is damn delicious. It’s deep with flavour and provides a back bone to recipes like no other.
The problem with dashi is that most recipes require a lot of time to make, meaning the home cook rarely has a go at producing their own.
Here to help with that is ChefSteps with their super simple, quick to make, dashi recipe that is done in 20 minutes – that’s right, 20 minutes for a umami rich dashi.
You can watch a recent Facebook Live video from ChefSteps where they make the recipe in a way you can cook along with them. And the there’s lots of tricks on cooking fish and how to make rich broths in less time.
