    Umami bomb incoming!

    This is nothing like you imagined.

    It’s a condiment. It’s not a tin of fish. To me it brings to mind KariKari or Laoganma chili crisp… Except it’s anchovy crisp.

    What’s more is that unlike a condiment, it’s handling like a spread or a pate… You could put it on something… Or not….

    Bottom line. Freaking delicious umami bomb that would to wonders to a soup or sauce, a cracker, or a fork… like I am.

    If you’ve found your way all the way through Dan’s inventory to this gem, then you’ve earned it… Go getcha some!

    The umami bomb review above is very accurate. I wasn’t sure what to make of this when I opened it. I ate some on a cracker and loved it but the tin really shined as an ingredient in curry. This was a great tin that was super versatile as an ingredient and eaten on crackers.

    Wow. Wowowowow. This stuff was AWESOME! ate it with a bowl of rice and some seaweed crisps on top and it was perfect. I really liked the pumpkin seeds added, it added a nice little crunch! It’s a lot of flavor packed in a small tin, and so worth it!

    This tin was really flavorful and punchy, reminds me very much of braised anchovies my father sometimes made when I was a kid. The fish was dried before braising so they have a slight crunch instead of falling-apart-tender like other tinned fish; the sauce is thick and clings to the fish pretty well. I had this tin with some hot steamed rice and would be hard pressed to think of a more perfect application for it.
