Shichimi Togarashi (literally, “seven flavor chile pepper”) is probably one of the most interesting & vibrant spice blends that we keep on hand in our kitchen.
Its a very exotic zesty Japanese —that dates back to the 17th century in Tokyo— salt-free mix of hot and cool flavors from chile and sesame seeds to seaweed and citrus, that tickle the tongue and add aromatic and complex, bold flavors to dishes. Add it to any sort of savory dish and it will pleasantly surprise you!
❖ Flavor profile
Abruptly spicy. Somewhat sour. Quite nutty. A tad salty. Absolutely delicious!
The aroma is of the dried tangerine peel, with a hint of nori (a type of seaweed often used for sushi, which has a nutty, sweet-salty flavor).
This has a bit of a quick hitting heat that fades quickly, but is also complex and savory with hints of citrus and earthiness.
Shichimi Togarashi: Fun to say it, more fun to eat it.
❖ How to enjoy it
Shichimi Togarashi is carefully handcrafted on a foundation of red Chiles, dried Orange peel, Sansho pepper, toasted Sesame seeds (white and black), toasted Nori flakes (seaweed), and Poppy seeds.
❖ Product Features
This robust blend is a blank canvas, just screaming for flavor fusion. Greek Spice, or Grecque, is a gentle and tasty, highly aromatic, seasoning blend for Mediterranean luvin’ flavor. It is versatile and easy to use. Greek need only be paired with olive oil.
