Furikake is the secret weapon of Japanese cooking. This magic dust (sprinkles actually) can transform a plain bowl of rice into a richly flavored meal and you'll need to look hard to find any refrigerator in Japan without several of these small delicious bags. But what we have in Rikyu Uji Matcha Surigoma Salt is furikake super-charged: surigoma (ground white and black sesame seeds) and salt that are the basis of most furikake plus matcha green tea from Uji, Japan's top tea-producing area near Kyoto.
The only limit in this condiment's use is your imagination! Rikyu Uji Matcha Surigoma Salt will add a distinctive Japanese flavor to any dish starting from basic rice and up to practically anything: salads, soups, dressings and sauces will all become richer with the matcha's bitterness, the sesame's sweetish edge, and the salt. And because we care about what we put in our bodies, remember: the sesamin and catechin contained in sesame and matcha respectively are among nature's best antioxidants and fat-reduction agents!
