Homemade Ochazuke & Pickles


For dinner tonight, we had a delicious meal. The broth was a classic dashi made from kombu and katsuobushi. It was over plain rice, with a piece of broiled salmon, radish sprouts and nori sprinkles. Making dashi from scratch is somewhat tedious, but this was certainly delicious. We added a little bit of the shiso leaf from our homemade ume pickles (chopped on right of the pickle plate) for that little bit of characteristic flavor. Overall a simple, but extraordinarily delicious meal.
