Shredded red ginger 1kg also known as Shoga in Japan. It is used as an accompaniment to many dish such as Japanese curry, sushi and meat dishes to name a few. It is often found with the condiments on the table of a Japanese restaurant or added to the side of a dish. Shoga cleanses the pallet before or between different strong tasting foods.
The ginger used to make kizami shoga is different from the ginger used to make sushi ginger or gari. It is made from young, tender ginger that is less fibrous and has a milder flavour compared to the mature ginger used for other ginger preparations. It is sliced into thin strips, which gives it a unique texture and appearance.
It also has a tangy, sweet, and slightly spicy flavour that complements the flavours of many Japanese dishes, like stir-fries, marinades, or dressings to add a zesty and refreshing flavour.
