Pickled Mustard Greens

I really like good pickled mustard greens, and got a few different kinds at Nijiya.

I had high hopes for this kind, but was a bit disappointed. I was expecting it to be a little more spicy because it actually had a little bit of a reddish hue and red pepper was number three on the ingredients, but the main overpowering flavor was of sesame oil. Sesame seeds can be a really enjoyable addition to many dishes, but dark sesame oil has a strong, smoky flavor which is not always so pleasant.

These pickles are a little piquant, and were good paired with Indian food. A lot of Indian pickles can be quite oily too, often with mustard seed oil I believe, so maybe that is why they paired so well together. They would be good with just plain white rice too, but I don’t think I would put these pickles out with a regular Japanese meal, as it would be too over powering and ruin some of the other flavors.
