Furikake is the broad term for a multi-purpose Japanese seasoning, typically sprinkled on top of rice, vegetables, tofu and fish, which can be made from an almost infinite array of ingredients.
This red shisofurikake begins with domestic red shiso, a Japanese herb related to mint that has an earthy flavor similar to basil with hints of citrus, and has a bright pink hue. The shiso is then slowly marinated in a high-quality ume (Japanese plum) vinegar. Since its founding over 50 years ago, Sokensha has used the "inherent power of food" to improve people’s health while protecting the global environment. Through love, food, peace and the belief that "What you eat and how you eat it is always connected to how you live”, they create their products using the spirit of traditional craftsmanship.
Suggested uses:Use in onigiri (rice balls), ochazuke (rice with tea), or mixed in rice for your hanami (sakura viewing) bento. It can also be used as a salt substitute (try sprinkling it ontop of rice, vegetables, tofu or fish)and to add flavor when pickling with salt, in aemono (dressed dishes), pasta, etc.
