Rice bowls with eel are good too, but if you eat this with dashi stock and turn it into a dashi chazuke (cooked rice with broth poured over), it turns into something even more refreshing and delicious. Since this recipe uses bonito dashi, the flavor is very authentic.
Make the sauce. Chop the mitsuba and nori. Put the ★ ingredients into the bonito dashi stock and heat.
Put rice in a bowl, add the sauce, and mix well. Place the eel on top and pour over the dashi stock.
Garnish with mitsuba, wasabi, and nori.

Story Behind this Recipe
I love eel. I added mirin to a recipe that I have been making for a very long time. I turned it into an easy-to-make, single serving recipe.
Step 1: It tastes delicious if you first make a rice bowl with broiled eel and then turn it into ochazuke. It's fine to mix the eel sauce directly into the rice first. Using bonito dashi stock releases a much more delicious flavor than using instant dashi granules.
