The Japanese Seasoning Blend You Should Never Skip At Trader Joe’s

0 10

Traditional to Japan, furikake is most commonly used on rice and rice-based snacks like sushi rolls, hand rolls, musubi, and onigiri. However, you can sprinkle it on anything you want to add a boost of nutty, savory, umami flavor and chewy crunchy texture. Similar to Trader Joe’s Everything But The Bagel Seasoning, that means you could put it on everything from your instant ramen to your avocado toast. But furikake is also said to work particularly well sprinkled on top of pasta, grain bowls, french fries, popcorn, and chips.

Given its roots in East Asia, furikake works inherently with fish. Try it out on any pan-seared variety you like, or sprinkle it on top of anything you add tinned fish to. In an episode of the YouTube series, “Snacked,” Chef Jose Andres shared that he likes to add the seasoning blend to his omelet sandwich which, uncoincidentally, also included canned tuna. Considering umami is the missing ingredient in traditional and plant-based tuna salads alike, Trader Joe’s furikake could be just what yours needs.
