Shishamo (Shishamo Smelt) from Hokkaido

It is normally available in a semi-dried form and eaten grilled.

Although a popular fish, even most Japanese do not know that this fish is absolutely delicious as a sashimi.

We have been looking forward to have this fish delivered. It is only available for a very short time each year, probably two or three weeks at the most.
