Background

Bonito fish flakes are arguably one of the most crucial basic ingredients in most Japanese cuisine. These paper-thin shavings of dried fish are the most commonly-used ingredient for making dashi; the umami-rich soup stock that goes into nearly all Japanese soups, noodle dishes, sauces and seasonings. For a great range of dashi made from a variety of different ingredients, check out Japan Centre's Dashi & Noodle Stock selection.

How To Use

To make 1,000ml of dashi broth:
  1. Bring 1,000ml of water to the boil.
  2. Add 40g of katsuobushi flakes. Place on high heat.
  3. Once it's boiling, reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain off the broth using a paper towel-lined sieve.
  4. Dashi broth is ready to use for miso soup, noodle soup, hotpots etc.
