Marumiya Tarako Furikake and Cod Roe Mayo
Marumiya (丸美屋) is a Japanese food company with the largest market share in Furikake.
Furikake (ふりかけ) is a traditional Japanese rice seasoning consisting of dry granules or flakes processed from ingredients such as meat, fish, fish roe, and seaweed.
As I wrote several times before, the maker has many long-selling products in its Furikake line-up, and what I introduce here, Tarako Furikake, is among them.
Marumiya Tarako Furikake
For the unfamiliar, Tarako (たらこ) is salted cod roe with the sac intact and usually comes in a lump.
We like to eat it with a warm bowl of white rice, and Tarako Furikake has been a favorite in Japan for a long time.
This year marks the 55th anniversary of the release of Marumiya Tarako Furikake,
and it is no exaggeration to say that this product is Japan’s most famous and most-loved Tarako Furikake.
How to use it?
Just sprinkle it over a bowl of white rice as much as you like.
You might think Tarako roe is bizarre and makes you lose your appetite. But this condiment has so much umami that you can like it.
With shredded nori accompanied, this Furikake is pleasantly savory and tastes great.
Tarako Mayonnaise/Cod Roe Mayo
Another way to enjoy this Furikake is making Tarako Mayonnaise or cod roe mayo.
As with Mentaiko Mayonnaise, Tarako Mayonnaise is a simple mixture of Tarako and mayo.
With this Furikake, you can effortlessly make Tarako Mayo by combining the flakes with your desired amount of mayonnaise.
The cod roe mayo, most commonly used as a dipping sauce, is the best match with fresh vegetable sticks like cucumber, carrot, or celery.
