At the heart of tonight’s gourmet, easy-to-make dish is subtly briny squid ink pasta, which brings out the flavor of our shrimp and eagerly soaks up the umami notes of our soy- and sesame-based sauce. A sprinkling of furikake—a savory mix of dried seaweed, chile flakes and sesame seeds—lends another flavorful dimension to the dish, complemented by the seasonal addition of sweet green cabbage.
