Nijiya original organic salt lemon, now available in stores!

Posted on 3rd February 2015 in Nijiya Brand

Last year all-purpose seasoning, salt lemon caused a big impact in Japan. Salt lemon is commonly used in places such as North Africa and Morocco. You can use this seasoning on meat, fish, and various kinds of vegetables also.

Originally, the whole lemon gets seasoned with salt, but Nijiya’s original salt lemon is in a paste form, so customers can enjoy the flavor of its skin, and it is also easy to use for cooking. Lemon, of course organic! Salt that is used are the mineral-rich natural sea salt. Although salt lemon goes well with any food, we recommend salt lemon sautéed chicken. Since meat is plump and soft, acidity will also be mellow while heating, so it could be enjoyed by those who doesn’t favor lemon as much. Other seasonings will be unnecessary if lemon salt is used. It can also be used in salads and desserts.

昨年日本で大ブームを巻き起こした万能調味料「塩レモン」。 塩レモンとは、北アフリカ、モロッコ発祥の調味料。レモンを塩漬けにして発酵させ、肉や魚の臭みを取ったり、逆に、肉や魚、野菜本来の味を上手く引き出し、味をぐっと引き締めてひとつにまとめる役割をしてくれます。

本来は丸のままのレモンを長期間塩漬けにして、そのエキスを使用しますが、ニジヤオリジナルの塩レモンは、漬け込んだレモンをまるごとペースト状にし、皮の風味まで楽しんでいただけるよう、そして料理に使いやすいように工夫しました。 レモンはもちろんオーガニック!塩もミネラル豊富な天然シーソルトを使用しています。 どんな食材にもぴったりとマッチする塩レモンですが、オススメはチキンの塩レモンソテー。チキンを塩レモンでマリネしてから焼くことで、肉はふっくらと柔らかく、加熱するので酸味もまろやかになり、レモンが苦手な方でもおいしくお召し上がり頂けます。レモン塩だけで他の味つけは不要。他にも、サラダやデザートなどにも使える、まさに万能調味料です。
