    Whoa! Fun tin. Similar flavors to the Old Fisherman Roasted Eel Chili and I mean that in the most complimentary of ways. Comparatively, this seemed a tiny bit spicier … the sauce was a little thicker … and the fish was more jerky-like than the eel (but not dry). Really enjoyed the textural difference in the tin and how the pumpkin seeds kept each bite interesting. On a spice scale, this seems like maybe it would be a mild-to-medium for most folks. For me, the heat was pretty much right what I was hoping for.

    Ate it plain and it was delicious on its own, but it does scream out for a companion ingredient (even if it was only beer as in the description). Can imagine it’d bump my rating up a half step if I’d had it over rice. Perhaps hard to justify this as a regular tin over the similar chili eel that is a few dollars less, but it’s not an exact comparison either, they are separate things. I did like this a little more than the Sempio braised anchovies in soy sauce but the quality is comparable. Overall, pretty fun to try these Sempio tins and I’ll be buying this one again.
