Everybody who’s a fan of spice loves the jalapeno. Though native to the Americas, this classic pepper is loved throughout the world for the extra edge it adds to any meal. Its great taste and superior health benefits have even allowed it a place among Japanese culinary traditions.
Just 100 grams of jalapenos gives you a robust dose of many valuable nutrients. Its strongest feature is its vitamin C content, which equates to a full 143% of your daily recommended value. At the same time, you also get 32% of your recommended vitamin B6, 24% of your recommended vitamin E, and 18% of your vitamin K. It also gives you lesser degrees of vitamin A, niacin, thiamine, riboflavin, potassium, and folate, as well as trace amounts of calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, and zinc.
You can get more of the great taste and strong nutrition of jalapenos at our Japanese restaurant in Seattle in several of our menu items. Try a hamachi sashimi with jalapeno, a jalaback roll, or an ocean alexander roll.
