When you first taste our Sweet Japanese Seven Spice, the initial heat on your tongue quickly subsides, and the sweet, salty, citrusy, nutty flavors reveal the depth and versatile qualities of this special blend of Japanese Seven Spice (Shichimi Togarashi).
Our Sweet Japanese Seven Spice gets its mild kick from Korean chili pepper; the citrusy notes from orange peel powder, ginger, and Sichuan pepper; the nutty crunch from toasted white and black sesame seeds; and that distinctly Japanese flavor from nori seaweed.
Sprinkle our Sweet Japanese Seven Spice on rice and ramen or udon noodle dishes, soups, tofu, popcorn, avocados, and potatoes. The blend is also great for flavoring an Asian-style vinaigrette. Or use the blend as the main component in marinades for pork, chicken, and shrimp. Click on the “Recipes” tab to find out more.
In combination with our Sweet Japanese Seven Spice, or if you just prefer a spicier version, you can also try our Spicy Japanese Seven Spice – a blend with the vibrant kick of Japanese chili flakes, and without the addition of sea salt and brown sugar.
