Shaved katsuobushi, or bonito flakes, are the main ingredients of dashi, a broth that forms the basis of many soups, such as miso, and sauces, such as soba, in Japanese cuisine. Bonito flakes are also used on food, including rice and tofu, to enhance flavor. Upon being placed on hot food, the heat waves cause the thin and light bonito flakes to move about, giving it a special aesthetic look. It is placed on pizzas to make the top of the pizza seem alive with the "dancing" katsuobushi.

Do you know the title of John Lennon's 1975 compilation album Shaved Fish refers to katsuobushi?
