Seasoned Kelp

Categorised in: | Link of this article

Some of you might noticed but I hold Japanese cooking class in Tokyo. Many of my guests asked me about the leftover kelp after making Dashi soup stock/broth. I use leftover kelp and also bonito flakes to make other dishes. This time, I will show you one of the easy recipes that you can cook for your family. In this video, I will introduce how to make the Seasoned Kelp. My son (2 years old) will join this video with me. I am sure that just watching what he does while cooking is funny…
Please enjoy the video and try it out!

Ingredients (About 100g):

100g Kelp *Leftover from Dashi soup stock
300ml Water
3 Tbsp (45ml) Soy sauce
2 Tbsp (30ml) Sugar
1 Tbsp (15ml) Rice vinegar
1 Tbsp (15ml) Mirin

Bonito flakes *Leftover from Dashi soup stock


1. Cut leftover Kelp into square shape bite-size pieces.

2. Put Kelp and pour water into a pan.

3. Add all the ingredients in a pan and simmer with medium to low heat. (About 20 minutes)
*If you like, add leftover bonito flakes as well.
