What do you do when a dish needs a little extra something, but you don’t want to take away from the main attraction? You sprinkle it with a little furikake!
What is furikake?
Furikake is a condiment usually comprised of sesame seeds, seaweed, and herbs, it often has a citrus or spicy addition. Initially introduced as a health supplement, the versatility makes it a must-have in any modern kitchen. While many different flavours can be added to the furikake, they are generally quite salty and should be used in moderation.
How can I use furikake?

It's also used in fish, meat and vegetable dishes where it can be added pre-cooking, or sprinkled just before serving. The possibilities are almost endless with furikake!
