What Is Togarashi?

As cooks, we often search for two main aspects: spice and umami. What if we told you there was an ingredient that delivers both? Togarashi AKA “Seven Chile Spice” is just that ingredient.

Our blend uses chili pepper, white sesame seed, orange peel, seaweed, soy sauce and more. This mix of flavors offers a unique profile not found in other spice blends.

How Do I Use Togarashi?

A mainstay in Japanese Cuisine, Togarashi is sprinkled over rice, used as a rub for fish and other proteins, mixed in with udon noodles and much more.

More unconventional uses include popcorn and even ice cream! This flavor enhancer brings depth and variety to whatever dish you add it to and it is worth having on hand.

The Flavor Behind Togarashi

Cooking is all about balance, and Togarashi is a seasoning that can hit the mark.

The soy sauce and seaweed offer umami, a key flavor in Japanese cuisine. To balance out the savoriness of the blend is the orange peel. This offers floral and tart notes to reawaken the palette. The chili pepper offers slight spice that adds an additional layer of heat and excitement to the blend.

Togarashi works because it balances multiple flavors and delivers them in a way that works in unison yet that also allows them to stand on their own.
