I used this product, along with kelp, to make dashi. Basically, the recipe is to bring water to a boil with the kelp ( a 4 or 5 inch long piece), then add the bonito flakes (sprinkle the surface of the water, as if you were feeding fish), stir, and let the water cool down. Strain and you have dashi!
A lot of people use instant dashi but I think the taste of freshly made dashi is incomparable. Good for making miso soup (add in some miso and maybe a little bit of tofu).
Dashi is a basic ingredient in Japanese cooking. It's as common as chicken broth in recipes!
This product (Nishimoto brand) was flavorful. I would buy it again and probably will.

This makes a very tasty dashi, but I have to keep the opened pack in a zip bag. The smell is much worse than other brands.

That may be why it tastes good, though. I'll likely re-order when I've finished what I have in the pantry.

Good product, but not the most cost-effective buy.

My husband can eat these out of the pack by itself, I have to hide them so I have them for takoyaki when I make it. Each packet is individually sealed which is great so you don't have to worry about having left overs.

I chose this rating because this is the first time I had ever used bonito flakes and didn't know what to expect from the product. They added the flavor I desired. Would recommend this product to anyone.

These flakes are small, and work great for dashi or as a condiment. I can get a better deal at the local Asian market for big bags, but these are nice to keep on hand for when I just need a little.

These are so yum! The individual packages are just right for a mid-day snack at work. I add them to a cup of hot water with some low-sodium miso and dried veggies. Will definitely order again.

My daughter says this tastes like fish food. Well, fish eat well then I say. I like it as is, but use it mostly for flavoring the ramen broth I make, or rice. There are lots of packets in this!
