Furikake Seasoning, Japanese
£2.30 – £5.50
Furikake is a traditional Japanese condiment, which is also very popular nowadays in Western kitchens. It is based on sesame seeds and seaweed flakes, but can include many other ingredients such as dried fish (which provides saltiness). Spice Mountain’s furikake blend keeps it simple, and suitable for vegetarians, by blending black and white sesame seeds, seaweed flakes and lemon salt to create an invigorating seasoning which can be sprinkled over rice, noodles, vegetables or fish. It has plenty of umami punch due to the seaweed, so can also be used in cooking, to boost the flavour of soups and stocks. And the addition of lemon salt to the mix gives it a nice citrus tang to balance the nuttiness of the sesame and the umami of the seaweed. We like to use furikake sprinkled onto ramen soup, where it really lifts the dish.
