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.Read more ›
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!

Use this in everything, sometimes dissolve in a thimble of hot water to distribute evenly. Heavenly citrus with a hint of a chile kick. I use it with the relish in tuna salad. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
