Tsuyu is a dipping sauce made of mirin, soy sauce and dashi. Dashi is a fish stock made using seaweed, bonito flakes, and water.

And dashi is a damn fine thing to have on hand in your pantry for quick soups.

@ Pierino ;) It's the Japanese version of "chicken soup!"

Home made dashi is the best it's Kombu seaweed, and bonito flakes simmered and strained.

However the instant "Aji Dashi" is just fine and is what most of the mid-class Japanese resturants use. It's comes closer to the real home made than say instant beef or chicken stock.
