Katsuobushi is smoked, dried and fermented bonito fish. It is one of the most essential ingredients of Japanese cuisine. It is mostly used to make dashi broth which is the base for many sauces and dishes.

Traditionally Katsuobushi is used in blocks and shaved using a wooden grater box. Although Katsuobushi blocks have a much more intense flavor most people nowadays use pre-packages Katsuobushi shavings available in any supermarkets. But once you experienced the intense flavor of real Katsuobushi it will be hard to be content with conventional products.

Raw Bonito fillets are first glutted, sliced and simmered in water for about an hour. Fat, scales and bones are then removed from the soft fillets. The fish slices are then smoked on wood to dry and develop a more complex flavor. Afterwords it is sun dried and exposed to fermentation with four repetitions to further reduce moisture. Katsuobushi only has 20% of the volume of the original fish fillet.

Buying from Japan February 21, 2014
Reviewer: Anne Maguire from Kerikeri, Northland New Zealand  
I would love to buy more from Japan BUT the postage is excessive and makes items too expensive. At times the postage exceeds the value of the item. Some overseas companies have much cheaper rates so they are the ones people like myself usually look for.

good December 27, 2013
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Switzerland  
good taste, but a bit on the small side. Also it's honkarebushi which is nice. To Joe, "Bonito" can also be Skipjack Tuna, it's a bit of a vague name.
Also, Japanese EMS impeccable as always.
