Katsuo Tataki (or Katsuo no Tataki) is a lightly broiled bonito, traditionally broiled over an open fire of rice straw. The center is still raw like sashimi but smokey char flavor is added to it. Usually Tataki is cut into 1/2 inch thickness and served with soy-based dressings and condiments such as green onions, garlic, Shiso and ginger.
Katsuo Tataki is a specialty in Kochi prefecture, but would be available at Japanese grocery stores in either frozen food or sashimi sections.
