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.

I always keep a stash of these. I love katsuobushi so much that I buy whole ones to "shave" for myself, but I often end up with powder rather than proper flakes. So these are my everyday flakes. They're good value, always nice and fresh, and consistent in thickness. I use them mostly as topping – on everything, really. There's not much they can't enhance.

Good quality, used for miso soup and as cat treats. Recommended to those who like a little more savoury taste with their food and to people who's cats suffer from renal failure - helps with lack of appetite.
