Shichimi, is a tasty blend of seven essential spices and seasonings. This glass shaker jar contains a blend of red peppers, sansho pepper, roasted orange peel, black and white sesame seeds, seaweed and ginger and is guaranteed to give any dish a spicy taste.
Togarashi, the Japanese word for “chiles,” is a group of condiments always including chiles that bring out the clean, simple flavours of Japanese food. Shichimi togarashi is also called seven spice (shichi is “seven” in Japanese), because seven ingredients are generally used. Traditionally it works well with fatty foods such as unagi (broiled eel), tempuras, shabu shabu (small bits of food cooked in rich broth), noodle dishes, and yakitori (grilled dishes). But we have found that it works on fish (especially salmon), and as a sprinkle on many dishes to add a little burst of flavour.
