Hanakatsuo(Dark Red Meat Removed) (katsuochiainuki-usukezuribushi)
Bonito flakes that can be used for all purposes, such as for dashi, as a topping or dressed with sauce.
The flakes are about 30-50 microns thick.
The bonito flakes are grilled with far infrared rays and then shaved to bring out their umami flavor.
The parts of the bonito that are dark with blood are removed to decrease the bitterness and other unpleasant tastes, so you can feel a milder taste when using the flakes for dashi or eating them as is.
They make a beautiful, transparent stock when used for dashi, and their aroma and taste spread through your mouth if you eat them as is.
They can be used as a base for several dishes and go well with anything, such as with takoyaki, yakisoba, okonomiyaki, aemono, salads and more.
They are also recommended for stews and Japanese-style soups to take advantage of their especially mild flavor.
