Easy recipe for bonito flakes made into broth (quick fish stock) that is delicious and highly economical as a base for soups and sauces when bone broth is unavailable.
Bring filtered water to a boil.
Remove pan from heat and add a half cup of the bonito flakes (sources)
Cover and allow the bonito flakes to sink to the bottom of the pot. This will take a few minutes.
Strain out the bonito flakes and discard or sprinkle them on your dog or cat's food.
Add miso paste and mix in if desired.
The broth has a smoky, hearty flavor similar to that of beef stock.
