- Japanese Furikake Seasoning | Karman Foods
Rice is one of two key ingredients in traditional Japanese cuisine along with miso soup. What separates Japanese rice from others is that Furikake is usually put in the mix for a unique explosion of flavors that make it distinctly Japanese. Furikake is a rice seasoning usually made from dried fish, sesame seeds, chopped seaweed, sugar, and salt, and is sprinkled on top of cooked rice, vegetables, and fish. It might not look much but a dash of furikake is able to give your simple dishes a boost of savory, spicy, and seafood-flavors, protein, and calcium.
