“Oyakodon (親子丼) is a Japanese rice bowl dish that literally translates to “parent-and-child-bowl” because both the parent (chicken) and child (egg) are used as ingredients. Finish the dish with a sprinkle of shichimi togarashi—a common spice mixture in Japan that usually contains coarsely ground chili pepper, Japanese pepper, roasted orange zest, black and white sesame seeds, hemp seed, ground ginger, nori, and poppy seeds.”
