Ponzu is a savory sauce made for foods that are umami, which is Japanese for “pleasant savory taste.”

Dashi, a clear broth, you can make your own by simmering kombu, a type of kelp, and bonito, a dried fish. After simmering for 30 minutes, solids are strained out and the broth is used.

Make a batch of it, freeze it in ice cube trays and then when needed, take out 3 - 4 cubes and make your ponzu sauce.
