When we started selling to restaurants way back when, chefs often asked if we carried Shirodashi. Truthfully, I had never really used it before, but when I tried Nitto Jozo’s version I was hooked. It has become a mainstay in my pantry.
Nitto Jozo’s Shirodashi base is their White Tamari, which is made up of only wheat, salt and water. Then Ninagawa-san skillfully incorporates shiitake, katsuobushi (from Matoba Suisan), sea salt, mirin, Ma Konbu and sugar. This condiment is meant for finishing, meaning when you just want to add a burst of flavor at the end of preparing dishes like soups, dressings, etc. The president of Nitto Jozo, Ninagawa-san says this is super delicious over steamed or boiled vegetables. It also works great when making rolled omelets (like our Dashi Maki Tamago recipe).
