The canned food is called as “Kanzume” in Japan. We don’t care that is long-term storage or not. Because, we eat them as one of the daily foods.
Especially, Japanese canned foods are popular that goes well with sake snacks!
Today, I introduce interesting & unique Japanese canned foods!
Sanma Shioyaki (さんまの塩焼き)
“Sanma” means saury.
The most common taste of saury is the kabayaki (kind a Teriyaki), but this one is salt-grilled.
It is a slightly oily…like oil sardines, but when warmed up, it turns out to be a nice sake snack!
This is my opinion, it goes well with a crisp Junmai-shu that refreshes the mouth.
It’s written “Kantsuma” means otsumami of canned foods. And “IKa mentai” means simmered squids flavored with karashi-mentaiko.
What's go well?
This snack goes well together with Sake or Shochu.
I have never known the mentaiko and squid would go together so well😍😍
It must be one that you cannot help loving it!
Snow crab flakes (まるずわいがに ほぐしみ)
The snow crab is called “Zuwaigani (ずわいがに)” . This canned food under 10 USD is not real crab.
What's is this ?
This was a real crab, so I bought it.
This is too smell fishy! But It’s pretty snowflakes.
I ate them on a salad…meat is too chooped… I don’t understand this taste at all😥
Japanese canned foods are so tasty that we don’t have a problem in a disaster.
Actually, when the Tohoku Earthquake decade ago, I have seen many people had a drinking party on the road in Tokyo😨 Because, every traffics are stopped…
That’s the reason Japanese are so strong in disaster, could it be thanks to canned foods, right?
