Toasted Sesame Seeds with Yuzu Seasoning.
The Japanese process of soaking and toasting the sesame seeds 5 times, infuses the aroma deep inside, and results in the most crunchiness.
Use this crunchy condiment to finish slices of raw fish and shellfish. Can even be used to garnish pastry applications like a sesame ginger panna cotta.
AROMA: Sesame, yuzu, citrus
PACKING SIZE: 2.2 oz. (Kraft Bag)
What’s yuzu you ask? Excellent question! Yuzu is a Japanese citrus fruit that tastes a little like a lemon and a lime had a baby – with lots of interesting floral notes thrown in. The fruit hails from central China and Tibet before being introduced to Japan and South Korea. The fruit grows very slowly – requiring almost ten years to fruit! Can you imagine waiting ten years for an apple?? No way!
These prized fruits make up the backbone of the Toasted Yuzu Sesame Seeds. The seeds are seasoned with a reduction of fresh yuzu juice. Each time the seeds are sauced, they’re dried and toasted – infusing the flavor deep into the seed and allowing it to crisp to perfection. The crispy crunchy texture paired with the delightfully tangy citrus flavor makes them a joy to add to your meals.
Try crusting a piece of tuna before searing or sprinkling over grilled asparagus. They would make a delicious addition to roasted chicken or duck and of course any salad and fish you can think.
Lastly, the Toasted Yuzu Sesame Seeds make a surprising and delicious dessert addition. Sprinkle a few over rich vanilla ice cream or mango sorbet. Use it to top an apple strudel or even bake it into a chocolate chip cookie for amazing results. Whether it’s sweet or savory, fancy or everyday cooking – there’s no doubt that our Toasted Yuzu Sesame Seeds are going to make your life way more delicious!
