Togarashi Spice Blend


Our version of the traditional seven-ingredient Japanese spice blend, this savory-spicy condiment is delicious sprinkled over soups and udon noodles, grilled meats and fish, popcorn, and avocado toast.

Makes about ½ cup

1 tablespoon Sichuan pepper

1 tablespoon dried orange peel

1 tablespoon black sesame

1 tablespoon finely chopped nori (about 1 half sheet)

2 teaspoons ground ginger

2 tablespoons chili flakes

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1. Add the Sichuan peppercorn, dried orange peel, half the sesame seeds, and half the chopped nori to a spice grinder and pulse until well combined.

2. Transfer to a bowl and add the remaining ingredients, including the reserved sesame seeds and chopped nori.

3. Place in a sealed container and store at room temperature for up to 6 months.
