I'm having one hell of a time sourcing the ingredients for the dashi recipe in Ivan Orkin's "Ivan Ramen" cookbook. This isn't just a case of 'damn, I'm gonna have to go to a few stores or websites to find some of this stuff'. The different dried fish are a PITA to find. Shaved dried mackerel? Shaved dried sardines?
Any online or mail order sources you guys know of?
