Chirimenjako and Rice

One other thing the recent care package contained was a huge bag of chirimenjako which are just perfect as a topping for a bowl of nice hot rice…


Chirimenjako are not strictly a variety of fish, but more a generic name for very small fish like baby sardines or anchovies that are simmered in saltwater, then dried in the sun.  This particular batch had also then be covered in a nice sweet marinade – a kind of crispy soy and sugar glaze really.

Really tasty, and more than likely quite good for you as well…
