White Shrimp Japanese Mochi Rice Cracker
Made with 100% Japanese Mochi Rice Non-fried Shrimp Cracker
They use the elegant and flavorful white shrimp, which can only be found in Toyama Bay, and season it only with vegetable oil and salt.
It offers a light and salty taste with plenty of umami and sweetness from the White shrimp.
It contains no artificial seasonings and is a masterpiece that brings out the aroma of mochi rice and the natural goodness of the ingredients to the fullest.
What makes them especially appealing is the use of 100% Japanese sourced mochi rice, and the deep well water with a rich salt concentration, said to have aged for centuries underground, which is employed in the production.
Among the many rice crackers I've tried, these stand out for their remarkably potent shrimp aroma, offering a taste akin to enjoying actual shrimp.
These crackers have a satisfyingly crisp and airy texture, making them easy to munch on, and you might find yourself enjoying them more than you initially expected.
What is White Shrimp?
White shrimp, a species native to the deep waters off the coast of Japan, is exclusively commercially harvested in Toyama Bay on the Japan Sea side, where it is abundantly available.
Due to its delicate nature, it was traditionally only consumed in the vicinity of its fishing grounds.
However, with recent advancements in freezing technology and distribution networks, it has now been designated as one of "Toyama Prefecture's Specialties" alongside yellowtail and firefly squid.
Today, it has become a widely available local delicacy from Toyama.
White shrimp is renowned for its exquisite and rich sweetness, as well as its profound umami, making it a truly delightful and flavorful ingredient.
It Pairs Exceptionally Well with Japanese Sake
White shrimp, often used as an ingredient in Japanese cuisine, pairs exceptionally well with various types of alcohol, particularly Japanese sake.
This cracker, expertly crafted to bring out the full umami flavor of white shrimp, are best enjoyed with pure rice sake, known as "Junmai Sake," to enhance the natural taste of the white shrimp itself.
Story of Yonezo
The company inherits the tradition of making rice crackers in the Kyoto Inoue style and has launched this brand.
The founder, Iwaki Yonezo, is the original creator of rice snacks in Toyama Prefecture. "Yonezo" is a brand created in honor of the founder, Iwaki Mikura.
All their products are carefully made in their main factory located in the fertile foothills of the southern part of the Tonami Plain in Toyama Prefecture, at an altitude of 110 meters.
They use 100% Japanese grown glutinous rice as the main ingredient, without any chemical seasonings, to bring out the flavor of glutinous rice and the goodness of the ingredients, making their rice crackers a superb delicacy.
They do not use the typical "uruchimai" rice but instead use Japanese grown mochi rice to prioritize safety and health, creating a rice cracker that allows you to savor the natural deliciousness of the ingredients.
