Shichimi Togarashi (Sun-dried Japanese Spice Mix), 0.49 oz
This premium blend of shichimi togarashi is a flavorful and hot mixed chili seasoning. The complex mixture of spices in this blend includes medium-strength chili peppers, tongue-numbing sansho peppers, ginger, richly flavored yuzu, black sesame, dried orange peel, and shiso (perilla). Blended using a 300-year-old secret recipe, this shichimi exhibits a wonderfully balanced yet complex spicy flavor and aroma. There is no need to add more salt to enhance a meal when you use this spice mix; just a small amount of shichimi adds many levels of spice and flavor to various Japanese dishes. It's a blend of umami at its finest.
Shichimi is a very versatile spice mix. Add a dash of shichimi togarashi to mayonnaise and soy sauce to create a savory salad dressing or dip for vegetables. It is also a great flavoring agent for miso. Mix miso and shichimi togarashi, let it steep, and you've got an excellent flavoring for stir-fries or onigiri. You could even try a sprinkle on top of your Bloody Mary to add a unique kick to a traditional cocktail! It is also a great condiment for dishes such as soba, udon, rice bowls (donburi), tempura, chips and more.
