Otsumami: Japanese Small Bites & Appetizers


'Otsumami' is the Japanese term given to snacks and simple dishes designed to be eaten alongside a drink. 'Tsumamu' means to grab something with your fingers or chopsticks, so any foods that can be eaten easily in this way came to be known as 'otsumami.' They are common at izakaya bars, pubs, and at house parties in Japan.

Popular ingredients such as dashi, ponzu, miso, soy, teriyaki, and more, all make an appearance in a myriad of recipes... morsels including dips, pickles and salads, gyoza and tempura, sushi and sashimi, plus beautifully presented meat, fish, vegetarian, and vegan plates. Also included is a basic guide to Japanese beverages and cocktail recipes. Kanpai!
