How to make Japanese-style fish soup stock:

Make a cut in the kelp. Soak the kelp in 1 1/2 cups (10 fl oz/300 ml) of water in a pot for little over an hour. Place the pot over a flame; cook without bringing the water to the boil. Remove the kelp and set it on one side. Add 1 cup (0.5 oz) of dried bonito to the pot and then take it off the heat, letting it cool naturally. Strain and retain the leftover liquid.
Liquid Measures:
1 cup = 200ml = 6.76 fl oz
1 tablespoon = 15ml = 0.5 fl oz
1 teaspoon = 5ml = 0.16 fl oz
