About the product
Sakura is the Japanese word for cherry blossoms, and denbu is flaked and/or mashed fish. Sakura denbu is so called because it has been dyed pink. Our sakura denbu is dyed using red yeast rice colorants. Sakura denbu is both sweet and salty, and is a very popular topping in Japanese cooking. It can be used on sushi, in bento boxes, and in other dishes. Its pretty pink color makes it a great tool for jazzing up plain white rice. Sakura denbu is also frequently used as one of the components inside certain kinds of rolled sushi.
To make our sakura denbu, Alaska pollock caught in the sea near Hokkaido are promptly processed (filleted), then broken into even finer pieces and cooked in a kettle over an open fire.
Sakura denbu is ever-popular and delicious, but rather time-consuming to make. With Sugarlady’s frozen sakura denbu, you can always have some ready to use without needing to worry about preparing, breaking apart, and flaking all that fish ahead of time!
How to prepare
Simply defrost the sakura denbu in the refrigerator, and it’s ready to add to your favorite Japanese foods!
