Shichimi Togarashi Red Pepper Mix .52 oz jar - Japan


The seven spices of prosperity! a blend of flavors that may have been created in the 17th century

Shichimi Togarashi, a blend of flavors that may have been created in the 17th century, as a way to help one to eat healthily.

Also referred to as Seven Spice, the number of ingredients in this pepper mix, this number is considered prosperous (lucky) and refers to the Shichifukujin, the Seven Lucky Deities.

This mix adds a little heat when added to “dry” dishes, it really comes alive when added to liquid like soup or oil from a fresh fish.

Unlike so many “spice rubs” this one is not sweetened with sugar, instead it has a wonderful hint of citrus. In addition, this mix has sesame seeds, ginger and seaweed which adds the umami that completes the seven flavors. With it’s little circular hole in the top it shakes out perfectly to make your Udon Noodles sing.

As a perfect complement to fish or fowl, you can imagine a line “drawn” down the center of a piece of salmon fillet with ketjap manis, diced ginger, and gentle sprinkle of Nanami Togarashi to kick it up without dominating. Important when having any freshly caught fish.

Easy to have about, and just under a million ways to use it!

This is a traditional Japanese 7 spice blend. A mixture of red peppers, sansho pepper, roasted orange peel, black and white sesame seeds, seaweed, and ginger. The seaweed brings out the flavors in a dish, and the pepper gives a little kick to whatever you add it to. Usually added to Japanese noodle dishes, such as Udon and Soba.
