[Yamamoto Noriten] Reviving original and delicious Edo food culture!
What is this long-established seaweed shop’s seaweed recipe of the month?
YAMAMOTO-NORITEN has taken part in the Edo Tokyo Kirari Project as a seaweed specialty store that has sought to continue preserving Edo’s food culture. The company has recently been sharing recipes on social media websites and its official website featuring seaweed dishes that cater to the needs of modern lifestyles.
In addition to onigiri, a staple during the holiday season, the company has also showcased recipes such as the visually intricate “omusubi sandwiches” that feature the use of toasted seaweed, as well as “toasted seaweed sandwich rolls” that are served with bread. Another simple recipe perfect for busy individuals that can be prepared in just five minutes is the “furikake seaweed Choregi salad,” which only requires seasoned seaweed furikake flakes and sesame oil.
At the same time, the official website of YAMAMOTO-NORITEN, “Nori Recipes,” also features recipes for seaweed-based dishes created by Izumi Takagi, a culinary researcher and author ofThe Delicious Dishes of Beautiful Japan. Updated monthly, April’s “Seaweed Recipe of the Month” is a “sea bream salad” that uses the entire sea bream, an ingredient that is currently in season. Visitors to the website can also purchase the “Shokuzen no Tomo: Toasted Seaweed Pack R” (345 yen, tax included) used in this recipe directly from the online website. Please look forward to the new seaweed recipe that will be published in May!
We hope that you will find these recipes useful when you are making bento lunches and cooking at home over the holidays.
