    Furikake (ふりかけ) is Japanese dried rice seasonings.  It’s used to sprinkle on top of rice and to make Onigiri (rice balls).

    It typically consists of a mixture of bonito flakes sesame seeds, chopped seaweed, sugar, salt, and some includes freeze-dried salmon flakes, shiso, egg, and vegetables. Furikake is often brightly colored and flaky. It can have a slight fish or seafood flavoring.

    Furikake Grocery Store

    Some Furikake brands include MSG but I usually buy furikake with No MSG or mutenka (無添加) label on it to avoid additives.  Furikake can be found in most Asian groceries around or in the ethnic food aisle of some major supermarkets.
