  • For Japanese Stock, see Four-seeded Salmon and Kabocha Miso Risotto recipe.
  • When making stocks with Asian ingredients, some may have a high level of sodium such as dried bonito flakes, whereas others such as konbu (dried seaweed) contains natural flavor enhancers. However not all the stock will be served, so the sodium intake is actually lower than what is calculated from the ingredient list.
