This is authentic Kyushu (region in Japan) style yuzukosho. Yuzu is an extremely aromatic citrus fruit in Japan and its zest the core flavoring component. Kosho refers to pepper, as this uses chopped chile peppers. The combination of pronounced citrusy, salty, and peppery components not only produce a unique flavoring, but also a very unique sensation for your tongue. If you have never tried this and have a love for unique regional foods, I can guarantee you will enjoy using this condiment.

Yuzukosho is most popularly used for yakitori (grilled skewered items), but is is also a fantastic complement for sushi and sashimi, among several other things. Authentic Japanese sushi chefs (shokunin) that go beyond the tasty yet standard fare California and spicy tuna rolls will dab various sushi and sashimi with this condiment and it can illicit a much more complex and satisfying flavor than a soy sauce. Not everyone has access to nor can afford to frequently enjoy great quality sushi (including myself), but dabbing some of this on store bought sushi can really bring things out and make you forget that you just bought your sushi on a giant plastic party tray.

As with many Japanese recipes/flavorings, this is a condiment that you will want to use very sparingly to get the most out of it. This is a very aromatic and flavorful condiment and a very little will go a long way. A mere one third of a pea sized dabbing will produce a lot of flavor on a piece of sushi, or biteful of yakitori.

I grew up and live in a part of California where there is a huge Japanese population (I'm of mixed race myself) and many authentic, highly rated Japanese restauraunts. Some of the best in the country, even.

I got addicted to this stuff when I was living in Japan, and one of my big regrets about being back in the US is how hard, and how expensive, it is to lay my hands on some yuzu kosho.

Yuzu kosho is made from the citrus fruit yuzu, which has a distinct flavor, different from a lime or lemon. Kosho basically means "pepper", and this paste has a peppery flavor with a distinct yuzu bite. It is soooooo good, and goes with almost everything. It is especially good on chicken and fish, which is what I mainly use it for. I also use it for a ranch-style dressing that is fantastic.

This brand here is a high-quality version, rather than the ubiquitous cheap tube form you can find anywhere in Japan. You don't use a lot of it when cooking, and a little goes a long ways, so this little jar will last awhile. I am really glad to have a place to buy it here in the US, because frankly I don't want to go back to cooking without it!

I love Yuzu Kosho. I found out about this wonderful condiment from an article in the LA Times Food Section about 4 months, and I immediately ordered bottle from Amazon, I can't locate it anywhere except Amazon. I've since ordered several more bottles which I keep using, a tiny bit at a time, as I find a little bit goes a long way, with it's sharp citrus taste a tiny bit added to certain things add a wonderful blending of flavors and a very special taste. It really adds a special something to many different things, especially Daikon and broccoli salads, Lima Bean salad, various other salads, guacomole etc.

This is a Japanese relish/flavoring, which I came across reading manga and wanted to try. They suggested it is awesome in soup. Gently spicy, with rather a hint of tansy ragweed flavor with major grapefruit, and citrus generally. Such an interesting new flavor, I can't wait to try it in different things. It has an amazing transcendental quality which I didn't expect. Probably good with anything. Very fun for the enterprising home chef. To start off with, I tried it with some sweet potato. That was yummy. Not really sure who I bought it from. Someone in LA. Nicely packaged.

Both the green and the red yuzu kosho are so fabulous. I know there are recipes for making it, but getting the fresh yuzu and proper hot peppers for the correct flavor profile isn't easy in most parts of the US (don't believe the recipes which say you can substitute Jalapeno or serano chiles they are the wrong taste), so these little bottles of this firey salty condiment are a terrific find. Once open keep it in the refrigerator and use sparingly because they are spicey hot, but you will find all sorts of ways to use it. The combination of the salt, chile pepper and yuzu juice and rind add a lift the almost anything. I first ate this where a little dab of it topped a wonderfully fresh raw scallop. If you don't like raw fish, try a dot of it on a lightly sauteed scallop. Of course I use it on all sorts of things --eggs are fab with it, a chicken breast which has been either roasted or sauteed and sliced thin with little dab of yuzu kosho makes it an instant hit. I don't cook with it, but rather use it as a condiment and sometimes I just crave its hot, bright flavor. Monitor your use of it -- they don't sell it in quart sizes! -- but the small jars mean that it always has its fresh taste. You'll want to re-order frequently.
