Japanese Seven Spice - Spicy (Shichimi Togarashi)

  • Hotter than you’d expect for a seasoning that is such an integral part of Japanese cuisine, but there is no better way to brighten up your favorite Japanese dishes than with our handcrafted Spicy Japanese Seven Spice (Shichimi Togarashi). Give an extra punch of flavor by sprinkling the blend on white/brown rice or fried rice, ramen noodles, or to make that bowl of hot udon noodle soup extra spicy.  Click on the “Recipes” tab to find out more.

    Our Spicy Japanese Seven Spice begins with the key ingredient of the blend – Japanese Chili Flakes. The seedless chili flakes add not only a cayenne-like heat to the blend, but also a vibrant reddish-orange color. To balance out the heat a bit, we mix in Sichuan pepper. This special spice also has a slight tangy flavor, which along with orange peel and ginger, gives the blend its refreshingly citrus notes. Next, we blend in wildcrafted nori flakes with its naturally occurring minerals, iodine, sodium, and other nutrients. And finally, for texture and a nutty crunch, we mix in toasted white & black sesame seeds.

  • Enjoy Tuna Sashimi Rice Bowl, Garlicky Tofu Fried Rice, Japanese Agedashi Tofu or Sweet Potato Fries with generous sprinkles of our Spicy Japanese Seven Spice.
