These thin shavings of bonito, a fish similar to tuna, are an essential ingredient in Japanese cuisine. These dried bonito flakes are often combined with kombu seaweed to make dashi, the base stock for many Japanese soups and broths. But that's just the beginning.
In addition to its many uses in traditional Japanese cooking, we think bonito is a great addition to any pantry. It's a versatile, easy-to-use seasoning that adds a slightly smoky flavor to all sorts of salads, dips and dressings. It's also terrific for enhancing steamed or sautéed vegetables, with or without tofu. And another discovery…if you like bonito, keep it out of reach of your gourmet-inclined cat! They can't seem to get enough of the stuff.
