Japanese Market Favorites

I love going to the Japanese Market - or any ethnic market for that fact because of all the goodies that you can find not available in the regular Super Markets. We have a couple of Japanese markets that are local in OC: Mitsuwa and Marukai. Here are some of my Japanese Market Favorites that I like to pick up.

Yuzukoshu - This paste/sauce is made from yuzu- a Japanese citrus that tastes like a hybrid of orange, lemon and lime. It's got a tart and spicy flavor that goes along with everything! I love eating this with sushi and yakitori like chicken.

Ponzu - a citrus soy vinaigrette - this is also made with yuzu and is great for dipping. I love adding this to my salads and eating this with fish - raw or cooked.

 Shichimi - Japanese red pepper - sometimes this has some bits of sesame and is great to add on top of everything to add a bit of spice

Have you tried these items? What are some of your favs?
