Canned fish as a snack or side dish

There are many unique canned foods in Japan, there are local original canned foods also.They were originally made as emergency foods, but nowadays most of them changed as snacks for Sake.

Today, I introduce unique Japanese canned foods for Sake.

negisaba

“Negi” means leeks and “Saba” is mackerel.
This food is a mackerel and leeks simmered miso pastes.

What is this ?

Miso paste works well with fish, because it remove on fishy.
I can’t stop drinking…

How's taste?

saba no misoni

Serve it with leeks and grated ginger on the top and you’ll look like a good chef,right?

nakabone

 “Sake” means salmon and  “Nakabone” means backbone. Japanese loves salmon also. This canned food is a backbone of salmon.

As you know, T-bone steaks, the meat on the bone is delicious. This salmon’s backbone looks like T-bone steaks…so, this is the yummy part also.

How's taste?

This texture is so crispy. Kids must be  liked this!  Little bit salty. So I do not need any seasonings. Japanese eat this with mayonnaise, though.

Kama age Shirasu

shirasu

“Kama age” means just being cooked and not dried. “Shirasu” means whitebaits. 

We often eat them with grated daikon or kaisen-don(Seafood bowl). This is a specialty product of Yaizu City, Shizuoka Prefecture.

What is this ?

There is an instruction on how to cook with shirasu.
But it’s only in Japanese,sorry.

How's taste?

This is expensive, but I can not distinguish the one sells in the supermarket.

The quality is not so difference that I think you’d better buying Shirasu at the supermarket😑

I found some pretty interesting canned goods and will share them with you next time.

Bye now😊
