I ate this same dish (minus the sesame seeds) growing up...still LOVE IT- very simple but tasty. Holly T- you can order dashi granules online from Amazon if you can't find them in your ethnic store (never seen it in regular supermarkets).

Perfect. I've been craving this and it's so simple and perfect. Nom. Dashi granules are often sold as "hondashi" or Bonito Soup Stock Bouillon. It doesn't say "granules" on the package. I found it in the spice section of 99 Ranch in a box.

I was an exchange student in Japan and my Host Mom would serve this for breakfast with rice and miso soup, YUM!! I want to make it but I am not sure where to buy "dashi granules" and "bonito shavings"??? Would they be in the ethnic food aisle or would I have to find a Japanese market?
