But for lovers of spice, the Japanese spice blend shichimi togarashi is worth seeking out. In English, it translates to “seven-flavor chili pepper,” though not all of those seven flavors are chili: There’s also roasted orange peel, sesame seeds, ground ginger and seaweed in the mix.

If you can’t find shichimi togarashi, substitute crushed red-pepper flakes.
