Jerky is a quintessential otsumami (food that pairs with alcohol) and is typically made from seafood in Japan. This sweet and spicy Sansho Teriyaki Sardine Jerky begins with domestically caught sardines which are combined with a traditional teriyaki sauce and another quintessential Japanese seasoning: sansho. Sansho, also known as “Japanese peppercorn”, are similar to Szechuan peppercorns but with a noticeable citrus flavor and strong spice.
Using skills inherited in their over 100 years in business, Hiramatsu Foods’ mission is to bring traditional Japanese food culture to the world by using quality domestic ingredients. The process to make their tsukudani (foods simmered in a sweet and savory sauce) takes three days to complete, allowing for the deep, umami-rich flavors to develop. Only the best seasonings are used to fully express this taste of Japanese tradition.
Suggested uses: Enjoy as is, as a topping on salads, or as a topping for ochazuke (rice bowl steeped in tea). Can also be chopped into small pieces, mixed with cream cheese and used as a spread on bread or crackers.
