Weipaa" is a Chinese soup stock with a red can. A blue can of "Kaisen Ajiba" will be added to the Weipaa line, available from early September 2020.
Kaisen Ji-paKaisen Ajiba is an all-purpose seasoning made from a combination of fresh shrimp extract, scallion, kelp, and oyster. It is packed full of seafood flavor.
Some stores have sold out of the product and it is hard to find. Luckily, I was able to find it at Platinum Donkey in Shirogane, Tokyo, so I bought some.
Trying out the Kaisen AjibaWhen I opened the lid, I found a brown paste that looked like caramel. It seems to be a little darker than regular weipaa.
And the smell of seafood wafting through the air is so strong and rich! It's not just seafood, it's the sea! You will feel as if you are at the sea.
First of all, I'll make a simple fried rice with spring onions. It's a very simple recipe that involves frying 1 beaten egg, 200g (7.05oz) of rice, 5g (0.18oz) of viper, and 1/4 of a sliced green onion in that order.
This is the only way to make it taste like a waipaa. By stir-frying, the strong aroma of the fried rice faded away, and I was able to enjoy the moderate flavor, aroma, and richness of the seafood. Simply delicious.
I also made a simple soup by dissolving vapors in hot water and adding dried wakame seaweed and sesame seeds....
It has a strong seafood flavor and aroma, like the kind of soup served at a fishing port. However, it's not sharp, it's round, and it's extremely delicious. With the wakame seaweed, I felt like I was drinking the sea. I think fried rice with shrimp, crab, or other seafood ingredients would be a great addition. If you want to expand the range of your Chinese home cooking, please look for it!
