Many of you have already adopted our furikake . And that really warms our hearts! It must be said that this Japanese condiment is a wonderful alternative to salt since it reduces the use of salt by 90%. Perfect for bringing taste and color to your dishes, while doing you good.
But what is it really about? Here is the little story of this super-delicious condiment: invented by a Japanese pharmacist at the beginning of the 20th century , it was thought to season rice and fill the food gaps of the population. Quickly adopted by the Japanese and especially children , it was originally made from crushed fish bones, sesame seeds and seaweed.
Moreover, the first version of 1910 was called "gohan no tomo" which means " a friend for rice ". Today, it pairs well with rice but also many other dishes where it is just sprinkled on the finish. Moreover, furikake literally means “ to sprinkle, to shake ”.
It's up to you to find your favorite combinations : on vegetable chips, on roast fish straight out of the oven, on popcorn for a nice salty version as an aperitif or even on your steamed vegetables to make them more sexy. Sofurikakez you life !
