Shichimi Togarashi

I just found out that the lovely and mysterious Japanese spice blend hailed in my last post on Japanese Noodle Salad is actually called shichimi togarashi.  

Gourmet Sleuth defines is as "7-spice blend that typically includes red chile pepper, roasted orange peel, yellow and black sesame seeds, Japanese pepper, seaweed, and ginger." Need I say more? It's absolutely delicious.
