Read our article on how to make Mentai Mayo and a quick recipe for Mentaiko Pasta!

  • Air-flown from Japan
  • 500G per pack
  • Extremely versatile for cooking
  • Best topped on seafood (salmonscallops, prawnssquid), vegetables (Shiitake mushroom, Leek, Eggplant); or made with Onigiri; or tossed with noodles (pastas or Inaniwa udon).
  • Best stored in the freezer. Once opened, store in freezer for up to 1 year.  As Mentaiko isn’t rock hard even when kept in the freezer, you may squeeze out required amount with ease and store the remainder in a ziplock bag back into the freezer. 
  • Note: Mentaiko is made up of very tiny particles, so even in -15 degrees, the mentaiko tube will still feel soft and will be easy to press/squeeze on. This is the same for Miso. This does not mean that it is thawed. 
  • Ingredient list: Tarako (Roe), Salt, Fish Extract, Spice, Soy Sauce, Refined Sake, Kombu, Yuzu Pepper, Flavoring (amino acid, etc), Alcohol, pH Stabilizer, Colouring (Yellow 5, Red 102, Red 3, Red 106).
