These shavings from Matoba Suisan are made from katsuobushi known as Karebushi, which is skipjack tuna that has been poached, smoked, and then repeatedly taken through a cycle of fermentation and sun drying. The fermenting process is laborious and takes at least 6 months to produce. Often used by the highest end restaurants in Japan, it really is the pinnacle of katsuobushi.

They impart a wonderfully smoky, slightly salty flavor and bring a deeper, rounder, more nuanced umami. This thinly shaved katsuobushi is probably the most common style used for making dashi but can also be used as a topping for okonomiyaki.

Store at room temperature away from direct sunlight. Keep refrigerated after opening.

Ingredients: dried skipjack tuna (contains fish: skipjack tuna)

Product Attributes:

70g plastic bag Made in Makurazaki, Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan
