Literally translating to "seven flavor chile pepper", shichimi togarashi is a Japanese spice blend that dates back to the 1600's and brings out the clean, simple flavors of Japanese cooking. We love this shichimi togarashi seasoning as a marinade for yakitori or grilled meats, added in rice bowls or soba or udon noodles. Some of our favorite shichimi togarashi recipes include use of fatty foods like broiled eel, tempuras. The Japanese spice blend nanami togarashi is closely related to shichimi togarashi, with a slightly different proportion of ingredients and a larger proportion of citrus zest.
Cooking Tips: Shichimi togarashi brings layers of flavors into a Japanese dish, which makes it popular as a spice. Known as the seven spice wonder, it jazzes up a dish including grilled meat, hot pots, donburi, and meat skewers with its spicy-herbal-citrusy flavor. Also try: furikake, matcha, and dashi granules.
This spice is a wonderful umami rich topping for as many cultural rice dishes that you can imagine. I would highly recommend it for those who enjoy homemade sushi, and rice dishes.
In several recipes, this is simply referred to as “Togarashi.” This surprised me with the amount of heat it contained which overpowers some of the delicate nature of the other spices t contains, but nonetheless, I found it useful in many things that I have made. Besides it’s use in Stir fries, I love it on veggies that I simply bake in the oven with olive oil. So far I have not tried it to season steaks or other meats as others suggest, but now I will! Overall, it rates all 5 stars!!!
Use on edamame, tastes great, spicy
