furikake

i've just heard of this from radio 4's 'kitchen cabinet.
it's a japanese seasoning which sounded like an interesting addition to flavour popcorn and rice, amongst other foods.
unfortunately for me it has fish in it (pretty when alive, revolting when dead - to me) but i thought it may be worth bringing to the attention of those who didn't hear the programme, have never heard of furikake before and who are near an asian supermarket and wish to try it.

Thanks. I am likely to pop into the Japan Centre this week and will take a look. Sounds tasty.

Never heard of that
Not sure if I'd use it, but interesting

I actually thought you had a spellchecker crash and meant fruit cake!

I'm certainly going to try and get the Shiso (Perilla) Flavour which I shall sprinkle over home made sushi.

Funnily enough I'm also thinking of perilla, as I have been looking at Korean food, and it comes up in that

i made the first in the list of links with the addition of some chill flakes, less sugar and a possibly naughty, inauthentic addition of a tiny bit of mushroom stock cube.
i ate some (and some za'atar that i made at the same time) with some bread and olive oil.
i was most pleased.
it will be tried on some rice the next time i cook some.

I love perilla, you can grow it here if you like it.

Yo sushi launched some Furikake-seasoned fries a couple of years back, which were good, though the rest of what they launched at that same time were godawful.

I have (had - can't find them ) some perilla seeds.

I have heard of Furikake but not tried because (I thought) not vegetarian.

Yep, it has fish in it.

But not the recipes I linked to above. They are all vegetarian/vegan.

Yes I know, I meant simply that you were correct - traditional furikake does indeed have fish in it. There's also gomashio, used in a similar way, that is veggie, but far less complex in flavour. We also loved a kind of dried sour plum seasoning that was also popular to sprinkle over rice etc. I cannot for the life of me recall the name, it'll come to me!
