Shichimi togarashi literary means “seven flavor chili pepper”, and it’s a mixture of red chili flakes, sansho (Sichuan pepper), sesame seeds, nori, shiso (perilla), dried mandarin or orange peel, hemp and poppy seeds. It is usually sprinkled on hot udon noodle soup and many other dishes to add flavor, spiciness and aroma.
My favorite brand is Yawataya Isogoro Shichimi Togarashi and you can purchase it on Amazon. You won’t miss this bright color tin in a spice aisle at the Japanese grocery stores!
You can find S&B brand Shichimi Togarashi on Amazon and Japanese/Asian grocery stores.
