View Full Version : Fish jerky

Found a product called Fish Jerky at a "Russian Store". It's little salted and dried fishs double vacum packed in 5oz packs. I think they are common at these kinds of stores. Cost about 5 bucks.
Should be able to use these fish all kinds of ways.

Yes hikerboy57, it's delish if you like fish. I got 5 packs and have tried the "Big Eyed Snapper" and "Crstal Fish". It's chewey like beef jerky and very salty. I diced some up and boiled it with rice and some other stuff I got there called Wasabi. I liked it and will make it a regular item just to have something different and because I like fish.

Cod spread out to dry, n.d.
This late 19th century drawing reflects the predominant method of fish drying used in the resident fishery in Newfoundland from the late 18th to the mid 20th century.

I am not sure you can call it Jerky because its not soaked in a acid - its salted... Hey if you like it thats great.

You can tune a piano,but you can't tuna fish?

Every time I ever tried to dry fish I had trouble with it falling apart into flakes and crumbs. The thing about this dry fish I found is that it is made from little fishs and has the skin still attached to it. That seems to keep it from falling apart. Also, there is no spices and so it just taste like fish. When I mix it with rice and dried veggies I add the spices I want.

Fiddlehead should be able to add to this thread. The dried fish, squid, God-only-knows-what stuff that exists in Thailand is awesome. I usually order several packages when family comes back to the US.

Dried cuttlefish is my fave.....
