Shottsuru is a fish sauce made from sandfish (hatahata). We offer two varieties: Fine Japanese Fish Sauce and this 10+ Year Old Fine Japanese Fish Sauce.
Historically, fish sauce producers could be found along the entire Japanese coastline. Yet in the early 90’s, due to the old age of producers and a lack of demand, the number of producers dropped dramatically.
Hideki Moroi, a third-generation soy sauce, miso and pickle maker, felt a deep sense of responsibility to revive shottsuru. With quiet dedication and many years of experimenting, fermenting and taste testing, Moroi created a product that he was proud to sell.
This 10-Year-Old Shottsuru is an elegant, beautifully nuanced fish sauce which rivals if not thoroughly surpasses the best Italian Colatura.
Try over pasta, fresh mozzarella and spring vegetables.
