Shio-Koji 250g



A traditional condiment made from fermented malted rice. Great as a flavour enhancer or pickling medium.

This umami bomb break downs proteins into amino acids for the benefit of our taste buds, and contributes to tenderising meat and fish. 

Use it to marinate, tenderise and enhance the umami, or richness in foods. Mix with a bit of grated ginger and garlic and marinate chicken thigh for at least 2 hours/overnight before baking. The natural enzymes break down the proteins and make them super tender and moist. Alternatively, place baby cukes and marinate for half an hour or couple of hours and it transforms into a delicious pickle.
