Landsea Gomasio Nutritious Sea Blend Furikake

2 oz jar - Orcas Island, WA

A Flavorful Dose of Goodness Gomasio

Gomasio is a mix of sesame seeds (goma), kelp and nettle. 

Landsea Gomasio is the creation of a resident of Orcas Island in San Juan County, Washington.

The island is about a 1 hour 45 minute drive north of ChefShop, and then a 1 hour ferry ride to the island. Orcas Island is the largest of the 172 named islands & reefs in the San Juans. It is one of the most beautiful places you can visit in the world.

Brooke, the owner of Landsea Gomasio, found an abundance of bull kelp and nettles on the island at the same time she met a neighbor who taught her classic Japanese cooking. It was in these friendly cooking moments that Brooke learned about gomasio.

We asked Brooke how she came up with her own personal blend and she told us:

“I realized this classic blend would be the perfect starting point from which to incorporate some of the nutritional wealth of the land and the sea. I replaced the salt with the more complex salinity of Bull Kelp and the bright note of Nettle. The result is Landsea Gomasio; a blend that supports the body with both the wisdom of tradition, and the nutritionally rich flavors of my home.”

What do we love about this furikake? The kelp imparts the salty sea and the nettle adds a hint of vegetable. Along with the sesame crunch, it is more like an ingredient than a spice. Imagine frying a nice fillet of fish with gomasio on the flesh side or topping your morning eggs and potatoes.

It adds an additional layer of flavor and a lot of healthy goodness at the same time.

If you like furikake, you will love this Landsea Gomasio. My favorite way to consume it is to pour a little bit into the palm of my hand and tossed back into my mouth! This is my go-to nighttime snack food.

Organic Sesame Seeds, Wild Bull Kelp, Organic Nettles

Wonderful
This is my new favorite, I looooooove it. And I love that it's locally made. I basically inhaled the first bottle I purchased. Goes great with so many dishes, and it's a great healthy snack by itself. I am hoping I can talk ChefShop into carrying the larger size. YUM!
