What is Furikake Seasoning?

Furikake is a seasoning made from savory and sweet flavors, including sesame seeds, katsuobushi (dried, fermented, and smoked skipjack tuna), green seaweed flakes, and nori seaweed. This traditional Japanese condiment is not only a fantastic addition to steamed rice, but it can also be used as a topping for onigiri, udon noodles, soup, salad, popcorn, and various other dishes.

How to Make Fried Rice Extra Crispy:

  • Use cold, cooked rice. Freshly cooked warm rice tends to stick to the pan and become mushy.
  • Sauté each ingredient separately. Fried Rice is a type of stir-fry, so it’s crucial to cook each ingredient separately to ensure that they are all crispy and properly cooked.
  • Allow the rice to toast by spreading it in a thin layer in the pan, letting it cook for a few minutes without stirring.
  • Avoid using excessive amounts of sauces, which can make the rice soggy.Add a crunchy garnish, such as chopped nuts or crispy fried onions, to add texture and enhance the flavor of the dish.
