I discovered furikake seasoning when reading a blog by Sean Brock, chef of several great restaurants located in the low-country of South Carolina. I like his cooking because he is all about the vinegar, bbq sauces, and other secret ingredients from the pantry.
Furikake is a savory and salty seasoning used in Japanese cuisine for sprinkling on rice. The main ingredients in a good furikake is dried fish, seaweed and the ALL important toasted sesame seeds which combined emote a sublime salty and umami flavor.
I order my supply of furikake from Furikake Rice Seasoning
Recently, I sprinkled some of this seasoning on my avocado toast along with a splash of soy sauce and srirachi and it took it to new heights. You can sprinkle furikake on salads, soups and of course on steamed rice. I also say out loud furikake, three times fast in a row, and amaze RM with my japanese vocabulary.
