- 1 For the Spicy Sansho Furikake, mix all ingredients in small bowl until well blended. Set aside.
- 2 For the Yakitori glaze, mix sweet soy, vinegar, mirin, miso and sansho pepper in medium bowl. Reserve half of the mixture to brush yakitori during grilling. Add chicken to bowl with remaining glaze; toss to coat well.
- 3 Alternately thread chicken and green onion pieces onto skewers; about 3 pieces of each per skewer. Soak bamboo skewers in water for at least 30 minutes to prevent burning.
Grill over medium-high heat, 6 to 8 minutes, turning frequently and brushing with reserved yakitori glazed during last few minutes of cooking. Sprinkle evenly with Furikake to serve.
Test Kitchen Tip: Sansho pepper comes from the dried green peppercorns of the Japanese prickly ash plant. Common in both Japanese and Korean cuisine, ground sansho pepper has a strong citrusy flavor and a mild tingly effect when eaten. Compared to Chinese Szechuan pepper, Sansho pepper is less spicy and produces a milder numbing effect. Sansho pepper is one of the key components in Japanese Seven Spice, also known as shichimi togarashi, as well as a preferred seasoning for Yakitori.
