Making Japanese soup stock (dashi):

3. Leave the liquid until the dried bonito pieces sink to the bottom of the pot. Before the liquid cools down, drain it with a paper towel or clean cloth in a strainer. (See the movie.)

2. Cut the komatsuna into 3 cm (1 inch) pieces and boil them lightly. When you use mitsuba, cut it into 3 cm (1 inch) pieces or make knots by tying the stalks.

3. Slice the steamed fish paste (kamaboko) into 8 mm (5/16 inch) thick pieces. Halve the pieces if they are too large to be eaten with one bite.

4. In a pot, put 4 cups of Japanese soup stock and the chicken. Cook these over a high heat until they boil. When the mixture comes to the boil, switch to a low heat and continue to simmer. When the chicken is cooked, season with 1/4 teaspoon salt, 2 teaspoons sake, and 1 teaspoon light soy sauce. Remove from the heat. Zoni

5. Toast the rice cakes in a toaster oven. When the rice cakes toast and puff up, turn them over and toast the other side. Griddles or non-stick pans (without cooking oil) can be used instead of a toaster oven. (See the movie.)

6. In a soup bowl, place the toasted rice cake, chicken, fish paste, and komatsuna or mitsuba. Pour the soup into the bowl. Place the shaved yuzu zest on the top of the dish.
