Product Information

'Karashi' is the Japanese for spicy, and mentaiko is cod roe. The full recipe includes fish and kelp (seaweed) broth, plus rice wine, sugar, anchovy extract, chili, vinegar and beetroot juice (and other items listed in ingredients section below). Now aren't you excited? It's like a paste although it hasn't been ground or pureed to create this effect - the eggs are just so fine that the texture is naturally paste-like. Karashi mentaiko is rarely eaten alone. You will use it to flavour rice, noodle dishes or other fish dishes such as squid strips. This item is made in Canada by a leading Japanese manufacturer of specialist Japanese foods.

  • Texture is paste-like
  • Karashi mentaiko comes in a sachet with a nozzle
  • The cod roe is raw
  • Add to rice and noodle dishes
