Bonito flakes are tissue-paper thin fish shavings with intense umami flavours. They come from a tuna-like Pacific fish which is dried, fermented to wood-like hardness and then smoked. Use - along with dried kelp - to form the base of the Japanese stock dashi, and or to great garnish for salads and light, Japanese dishes such as fried tofu or somen noodles.
