Shichimi Togarashi, which translates to “seven-flavor spice,” is a traditional Japanese seasoning blend. Shichimi togarashi balances the spicy heat from red chiles with a medley of sweet and savory flavors, including orange zest, nori seaweed, and sesame and poppy seeds.
Shichimi togarashi is typically used as a condiment, sprinkled over cooked food just before serving, to add a final layer of complex flavor. It is most often used to flavor rice dishes and nabemono (one-pot stews), and noodles like udon. In fact, most udon noodle shops offer customers shichimi togarashi (often their own custom blend) to sprinkle liberally on their noodles while they eat.
Our handcrafted Shichimi Togarashi is a complex combination of spicy, sweet, and umami flavors, beginning with a blend of three types of chiles – Bird’s eye chiles for bold heat and Aleppo and aji amarillo chiles for sweeter, fruitier notes.
Spices (including chile flakes, ginger), sesame seeds, orange peel, salt, nori (seaweed). Contains sesame.
