*1large knob ginger
*1/2 cup /100ml sake
*1/3 cup/80ml mirin

1 Slice the ginger. Cut the bonito into 2cm square pieces.
Put the soy sauce to the pan. Turn the heat on medium.
Add the sugar and sake.
When it comes to a boil, add the bonito and ginger.

Turn off the heat and let it stand. This allows the bonito to absorb the flavour.
