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.

i was surprised at how small the portions were when receiving these. considering that when watching iron chef machiba cook with them he uses like 1/2 a kilo! what i found out however is, a little bit goes a long way. a good product but in order for you to maximize your dollar, i suggest ordering more than one item as the shipping was more than the item's actual cost. hence the 3 of five
