Have you ever had a bowl of sushi rice that was slightly spiced and thought to yourself, “What is that delicious seasoning?”
Furikake seasoning, refers to a range of dried, mixed seasonings based on a traditional Japanese seasoning that is sprinkled onto cooked food.
This seasoning is aromatic and has a perfectly salty taste. Furikake is a crunchy salty seasoning, thanks to the seaweed nori. It also has a yummy nutty flavor from the sesame seeds.
In Japan Furikake is typically sprinkled over rice to add flavor and texture.
Furikake is a tasty seasoning that is sprinkled over steamed rice. Japanese people love this seasoning because it gives plain sushi rice a delicious umami flavor!

Although many spice blends are added to food before or during cooking, Furikake (pronounced Foo-ree-kar-key) is usually sprinkled on fish, seafood and both white and red meats after cooking, or used as a tasty seasoning at the table instead of salt and pepper.
