Made with garlic, rice koji, and salt, Shio Koji Garlic Paste is a versatile, tasty, and nutritious seasoning. It’s an exquisite blend of shio koji (salted rice koji paste) and garlic paste, which exhibits substantial umami and an appetizing garlic flavor. This energy-boosting seasoning was developed by Yokofuku, a garlic farm in Kagoshima Prefecture, and is crafted from their own crops, grown in mild weather with fertile soil. One bottle of Shio Koji Garlic Paste (150g / 5.3 oz) contains two whole bulbs of garlic. Also, rice koji is a probiotic food that helps improve gut health. You can use the paste not only for cooking dishes like pasta, grilled meat and fish, sautéed vegetables, but also as a condiment. Because enzymes in rice koji can break down proteins, it is ideal for marinating meat, fish, and vegetables as it enhances their flavors while making them juicy and tender. No artificial flavorings, colorings, preservatives, or additives are used to make this seasoning.

If marinating meat or fish, Shio Koji Garlic Paste will draw out their flavors and make them juicy and tender. Recommended marinating time is about 30 minutes to half a day with 3-4 tablespoons of paste for ½ pound meat or fish. With this recipe you can make amazing grilled chicken, pork, or salmon. You can also use it for beef steak or roast beef. If you season sautéed dishes or stir fries with this paste, you won’t need any other seasonings at all—the paste has enough saltiness and umami, and there’s a garlic accent too. Shio Koji Garlic Paste’s substantial umami and appetizing garlic flavor make it perfect for mixing into pasta sauces, ramen soups, or salad dressings as well. Also, making namul (Korean side dish made with seasoned vegetables) cannot be easier if you use this paste—mix Shio Koji Garlic Paste (1 tbsp) and sesame oil (1 tbsp) first, and dress your choice of boiled vegetables (100g / 3.5 oz) with the mixture. You can also serve the paste as a condiment on the side of grilled vegetables, fried chicken, and charcuterie.

Great as a marinade!

Ordered this cause it sounded good. Marinated some chicken thighs with it for a day or 2 then baked them with nothing else on them. It was so good. Maybe some of the best chicken I've had. Marinating some more in my fridge right now.

Rich garlic umami flavor

If you like toum, you'll love this koji garlic paste. The taste is rich, deep, and flavorful. The garlic is strong without being overpowering, and the rice koji gives the paste a unique depth of umami flavor. Great with chicken, vegetables, or even as a spread on crackers. So good!
