Test Kitchen Tips:
Bonito flakes are flakes of dried smoked bonito, a fish in the tuna family. It is used in Japanese cuisine to add salty flavor to soup stock, sauces, and noodle and vegetable dishes. Nori are sheets of dried seaweed used as a wrap for sushi and a garnish for soups and noodles. Look for bonito flakes and nori in the international aisle of some supermarkets, Asian specialty markets or online.
