TJ’s FURIKAKE Japanese Seasoning for rice


Trader Joe’s FURIKAKE Japanese multi-purpose seasoning

PRODUCT OF JAPAN

“Furikake” is so typical in Japan you’ll probably see a jar next to the salt and pepper in any eatery as well as anyone’s home. Its a Japanese seasoning blend condiment of chopped dried nori (seaweed), sesame seeds and sometimes other flavors. Mostly a rice topping, one sprinkles furikake on top of plain rice to give extra flavor (umami) and make it more interesting. It’s delicious sprinkled on a bowl of rice. You can use it elsewhere too. Sprinkle this on rice, on fish, meats, on top of eggs, noodles, or a bowl or ramen. This is why Trader Joe’s calls its a “multi-purpose seasoning”. Trader Joe’s Nori Komi Furikake is a basic simple version. In Japan, there are lots of kinds of furikake with different flavors (dried salmon and other fish, etc) As you can see here

Trader Joe’s Nori Komi Furikake contains: white sesame seeds, black sesame seeds, nori (seaweed), salt and kelp powder (more seaweed!). Seaweed of course contains glutamates which gives food “umami”. Personally I have to have this in our pantry at all times. A jar will last some time. You’ll find it in TJ’s spice section. This is worth trying.

Got “nothing to eat” in the house? If you have some Asian rice; an egg and this you can have a easy and tasty meal. Directions: Place rice in a bowl and top it with a fried egg, sprinkling a liberal amount of Nori Komi Furikake over everything. YUMMY DINNER!

A jar is $2.49. At a Japanese grocery it would be twice that.
