Gotta Get – Nama Shichimi 生七味

My latest craving is this great shichimi paste from the Kubara Honke Group. This nama shichimi is a paste of shichimi or seven spice. A little bit in miso soup for breakfast adds just the right spice to the savory soup. I also like it with some roasted chicken or yakitori.

It is a thick paste of red chili pepper, yuzu peel, sea salt, sansho, black sesame seed, ginger, and aonori.

A girlfriend introduced me to the product line. At her house she had some dashi-jio or dashi salt. She uses it for omusubi rice balls. She speaks very highly of everything she has tried from the company. We love the nama shichimi and will definitely try other products.
