Mitoku Dried Bonito Flakes

Japanese Shaved Fish Flakes

Said to be the backbone of Japanese cuisine, Bonito Flakes or "katsuobushi" come from smoked Skipjack Tuna which has been cut in half and then dried until it becomes like a piece of driftwood. It is then shaved into thin flakes to be used as the base for Japanese soup stock. This creates the basic and essential flavor of Japanese cooking. Our Mitoku Bonito is naturally-cured for about 6 months. Large Bonito Flakes are ideal for making "dashi" or Japanese soup stock. The small flakes make a rich stock for noodles or miso soup or can be used to sprinkle atop dishes such as hiyayakko, a popular cold-tofu dish or for adding extra flavor to Japanese nabe (pot) dishes. Known as the "Flavor of Japan," Bonito is an ingredient Japanese cooks wouldn't dare be without.

Mitoku Concentrated Shiitake Dashi Broth
A Japanese Vegetarian Stock

Mitoku Concentrated Shiitake Broth is a richly flavorful and versatile Japanese stock. The goodness of shiitake mushrooms is concentrated and blended with Johsen Shoyu (soy sauce). Just dilute and heat to make savory soups and Oriental noodle broth in an instant. It's also perfect as a dip for "tempura" (Japanese deep-frying entrée) or mix with Mitoku Sweet rice vinegar and Toasted Sesame Oil as the base for delicious Japanese home-style fresh dressings. As this product is so versatile and convenient, it has become one of our more popular products.
