Katsuobushi - Thick Shavings - 500g

Matoba Suisan

  • The same size used by chefs!

    These shavings from Matoba Suisan are made from katsuobushi known as Arabushi, which is skipjack tuna that has been poached and smoked. The fact that each step is done by hand demonstrates Matoba-san’s dedication to artisanal, traditional production methods.

    They have a wonderfully smoky, slightly salty, rich umami flavor that adds depth to dishes. This thick shaved katsuobushi is used for making a deep, strong, clean flavored dashi, but remember to let it steep for at least 20 minutes. The longer you let it steep, the more intense your dashi will be.

    To learn more about the differences and how to use fermented vs non-fermented katsuobushi, please read our blog post Katsuobushi Journey.

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