  • Description


What exactly is Yuzu Kosho 柚子胡椒? It is is a Japanese paste made from Yuzu extract (usually skin or juice) and fresh Chilli Peppers. Once cleaned and mashed with a pestel to form a paste, it is usually left to sit and ferment for at least a week. It works great paired with fatty meats (Think: a nice fatty steak of Wagyu), or fish. The clean, umami flavour profile instantly adds complexity to a simple dish. And one hack we discovered is to add a small bit (about half a tea spoon) into a pot of Chicken or Pork bone broth before serving with some Japanese noodles. Perfect on a rainy afternoon!
