  • Japanese people use dashi or stock.
  • It is made with bonito and dashi kobu [kelp].
  • The bonito is grated to very fine flakes.
  • As this unavailable in Western countries, chicken stock, fish stock or monosodium glutamate were substituted here.
  • When stock is made in Western countries, different kinds of seasonings are used, but in Japanese cooking, the only seasoning used is negi and sometimes ginger.
  • This kind of simple stock suits the Japanese palate.


Japanese rice wine is used here, but sherry is similar in taste and can be used instead.


This is sweet wine; 1 teaspoon [5 mL] sugar added to 1 tablespoon [15 mL] sherry makes it taste like mirin.
