Uses for Shiso Fumi Furikake other then putting it on rice.

I got a jar of this at the local Asian supermarket taking David Chang's advice to grab someone you don't know about and try it. I like it, it's pretty good. However, what do I with it other then add it to cooked rice?

    Wellllll, this IS partially rice :) But I got the tip here to heat up some leftover rice, top it with a raw egg (you could use poached), then a little soy and furikake. Great breakfast!

      Soba, scrambled eggs or omelet, season grilled fish or chicken with it, green salad, or mix with azuki beans or edamame for bean salad.

        I'll put that stuff on anything! Most often on cucumber slices, salads, baked tofu, roasted veggies, noodles.....
        My favorite way so far is on edamame.
        I'm sure its good on fish since the seaweed has some ocean flavor to it, tho i haven't tried that myself.

              You can use it as a crust for any sort of meat - fish works well, I enjoy it on ahi tuna and swordfish but you can also use it on chicken or pork.
