Maruya Sansho Pepper Powder $12.95

Citrusy, bright, with a near pine-like profile.

Sansho pepper, also called Japanese pepper or prickly ash, is a cousin of Sichuan peppercorns. It yields a similar bold, but brief, mouth-tingling sensation and a mild mouth-watering quality.

Not sure how you’d use it?

We test everything we sell. Here’s how we’d use this.


Traditionally, the pepper is sprinkled on eel donburi and yakitori as well as slurpy udon noodles in the Kansai region of Japan. We love it blended with salt for a bold all-purpose seasoning and using it to add depth to rich fried dishes like chicken, and tempura. Toss a pinch into spreads and sauces to add complexity, or use in place of black pepper wherever you’d like. And it’s incredible tossed in with your favorite kettle-cooked potato chips (trust us).
