Plum for sushi rolls? It’s not as far-fetched as you might think. In fact, honey-plum sauce is a common base for sushi rolls comprising tuna, shrimp, crab, or ika (raw squid) owing to its sweetness. Even without the addition of honey, plums are inherently popular in Japanese cuisine, usually in the form of Umeboshi – a salted, pickled plum commonly eaten with rice, or sliced atop Onigiri. Umeboshi is an acquired taste due to its being both sour and salty, but there is a sweeter alternative – Roland Plum Flavored Sesame Seeds!
Combining the sweetness of plums with the almost invisible crunchiness of tempura, Roland Plum Flavored Sesame Seeds are a multi-sensory ingredient that makes them ideal for use as a sushi topping. Characteristically nutty with just a hint of sweetness, Roland Sesame Seeds aren’t too overpowering, so are unlikely to compromise flavor when paired with delicate fish or rice. And with a deep, damson-purple hue, they’ll add a splash of color too – quite unlike any other sushi ingredient!
Naturally roasted and colored (using spices), Roland Plum Flavored Sesame Seeds boast a wealth of health benefits. Rich in heart-healthy oils, such as Omega-6, and protein, Sesame Seeds can aid in lowering ‘bad’ cholesterol, and help to combat skin conditions, such as eczema and dermatitis. And if you’re concerned about fine lines or wrinkles, rumor has it they’re somewhat effective in fighting the signs of ageing too!
