Canned sea foods for side dishes or sake snacks.

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 shioyaki

Sanma” means saury.
The most common taste of saury is the kabayaki (kind a Teriyaki), but this one is salt-grilled.

How's taste?

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.

Ikamentai (いか明太)

Kantsuma ikamentai

It’s written “Kantsuma” means otsumami of canned foods. And “IKa mentai” means simmered squids flavored with karashi-mentaiko.

What's go well?

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?
