Momiji-oroshi もみじおろし

Momiji-oroshi もみじおろし literally means “grated autumn leaves” but refers to the rich red color that results when dried chillies are placed inside a daikon radish and then finely grated, using a special grater that is just for making daikon-oroshi. It is a popular condiment served with white-fleshed fish because the chilli stimulates the palate to enhance the delicate taste of the fish.
