Furikake Bonito Flakes and Sesame Seeds

I made furikake with leftover bonito flakes from making homemade soba noodle dipping sauce. The umami from the bonito is very delicious. Top over plain rice!

Ingredients

Soba noodle sauce (Recipe ID: 1900791)
as needed
White toasted sesame seeds
1- 2 tablespoons

Steps

1. Make the soba noodle sauce and strain the bonito flakes and kombu through a sieve. With a paper towel, squeeze out the excess liquid, and dry-roast in a pre-heated frying pan.
2. When the bonito flakes are dry, turn off the heat, and mix in the sesame seeds. When cooled, transfer to a container with a lid and refrigerate.

Story Behind this Recipe

This is a recipe I just thought up. If using leftover bonito flakes from making dashi stock, add mentsuyu and the furikake will be tasty.
