Although this dish is listed as Japanese it is really a fusion of east meets west. Furikake is flakes of dried seaweed mixed with other ingredients and comes in many flavors from fish to plum. Traditionally Furikake is sprinkled on rice, but this recipe offers a different way to enjoy it. The type used in this recipe is called Nori Goma Furikake or Aji Nori Furikake (seasoned seaweed and sesame seed mix). Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
