Let’s make Japan’s magical, all-purpose condiment — SHIO KOJI!
The basic condiments used in “Washoku (Japanese cooking)” such as soy sauce, miso, vinegar, sake, and mirin are all fermented, and in Japan, we have many other condiments that are fermented.
The “Shio Koji” that we want to introduce to everyone is a condiment that is made by fermenting “Koji (malted rice)” and salt. It is a traditional condiment that has been used in Japan for a long time. Using this instead of salt adds umami and depth to your cooking. The enzymes also tenderize meat when cooking. Adding a little Shio Koji into your dishes will upgrade the taste and that is why it is called a magical condiment!
In this lesson, we will show you how to make Shio Koji, and we will all make 4 easy and healthy dishes using Shio Koji and Shoyu Koji (fermented Koji & soy sauce) together.
