Konbujime or kobujime is fresh fish or other seafood that is lightly salted and cured for a brief time in konbu seaweed, and served sliced like sashimi.

A popular drinking snack or side dish accompanying a traditional Japanese meal, the fish absorbs lots of umami and flavor from the konbu, taking on a rich, unctuous texture as the moisture is drawn out.
