In this shichimi togarashi, Tsujita-san highlights the aroma and taste of dried yuzu. While not as spicy as the Tsujita-san's regular shichimi togarashi, it still has a nice bit of heat from the Takanotsume ("Hawk's Claw") peppers. Use this yuzu shichimi togarashi on dishes where you want a citrus-y brightness, such as a corn miso soup or on top of grilled fish. Also goes great on grilled chicken.
Keep in freezer when not using to preserve freshness.
Ingredients: dried yuzu peel, red chili pepper, golden sesame seeds, seaweed, Japanese pepper (sansho), poppy seeds
