Personally, I don’t think it’s the same. I’m a huge beef dashida user, so I’ve got nothing against powdered mixes, but I don’t like the taste of anchovy dashida. It tastes too fishy and doesn’t have that mellow flavor that using dried anchovies do. If it’s convenience you’re after, use the anchovy tea bags. That’s what I switched to. They’re pulverized anchovies in these little stringless teabags. One bag equals the same as a typical 6-7 anchovy serving size. When the stock or soup is done, just fish it out with a spoon or chopstick. After opening the package, I store mine in a ziplock freezer bag. Very convenient. Just don’t mistake them for your corn tea bags. I did that once…yuck…though my mother (who’s Korean) tells me that drinking anchovy stock is actually done now and then. Sort of like a savory tea.
