Red Chile Pepper Yuzu Kosho
If you are a hot sauce fiend and have a tendency to put it in everything you eat, then it’s time for you to meet yuzu koshō. This Japanese paste, made from chili peppers, yuzu peel (a Japanese citrus fruit), and salt, is going to transform virtually any food you eat.
What sets yuzu kosho apart from typical hot sauces is its complex profile that transcends mere spiciness. It introduces a unique citrusy aroma, creating a perfect harmony of heat and tang. It works brilliantly on tempura, sashimi, and miso soup, but also unexpected pairings, including dressings and even desserts!
