Japanese Seven Spice Recipe

In Japan this seasoning recipe is called shichimi togarashi, but we know it better as Seven Spice. It's excellent sprinkled over sushi, rice, soups and noodles dishes.

Ingredients: (makes about 1 cup)

3 tbsp chili flakes
2 tbsp Sichuan pepper (or use extra chili flakes)
2 tbsp white sesame seeds
2 tbsp black sesame seeds
2 tbsp dried orange peel
1 tbsp pre-ground ginger
3 tbsp seaweed (nori flakes, wakame or arame)

tbsp = tablespoon


In your coffee grinder or spice mill, coarsely grind the chili flakes, pepper, sesame seeds and dried orange peel. Add the ginger powder and thoroughly combine. Crumble in the seaweed.

Store in an airtight jar out of direct sunlight.
