    Aromatic condiment for the Japanese palate – Chirimen sansho

    Chirimen sansho is a condiment that Japanese people like to eat with plain rice.  Dried baby fish are simmered in sweetened soy sauce and Japanese pepper (sansho) is added for spiciness.  Harema’s chirimen sansho (1,080 yen) uses fine small fish and seasons them only with soy sauce and sansho pepper.  The more you chew, the more the taste spreads in your month.  They didn’t intend to sell the chirimen sansho at the shop, but the first generation owner cooked it at home and gave it to his friends.  It was so good and became popular so they started to sell them since around 1971.  Today, their chirimen sansho has become the bestselling item at Harema and their cooking method remains unchanged.  Selecting only good small fish, they don’t produce it in large quantities and just make enough for sale on the day.   The aroma of sweet soy sauce along with the spiciness of sansho will surely stimulate your appetite.
