Excellent on a wide range of foods, we love to add Yuzu Kosho to everything from nabe, udon, and soba noodles to grilled meats and avocado toast! Its savory, spicy profile is the tasty result of a combination of unripe green yuzu peels and green chiles. Spicier and tangier than its red equivalent, if you already love the flavor of Kosho, its green version will blow your mind!
What is Yuzu Kosho?
Yuzu Kosho is a traditional Japanese paste made from chilies and yuzu peel. Yuzu is a Japanese citrus fruit that has a bright flavor sometimes compared to a cross between a grapefruit and a lemon. The spicy chilis bring heat, and the addition of salt rounds it out. The combination is then fermented to deepen the flavors and allow them to meld into one another. A delicious condiment and many chefs’ favorite secret weapon, you’ll find this ancient Japanese paste in all the best restaurant kitchens.
