Japanese onigiri

A taste of Japan

Furikake, a coarse blend of seaweed, sesame, dried seafood, sugar and salt, is a staple seasoning in Japan, adding umami-rich taste to Spanish tapas-style plates served in izakayas, Japanese gastropubs. Another popular snack is onigiri, rice balls stuffed with a flavorful filling, such as ginger and plum vinegar infused chicken.
