Shishamo is a small saltwater fish commonly eaten in Japanese cuisine that is simply grilled, and often found on izakaya menus.  It's known for its salty flavour and a body full of roe.

Given its such a small fish, its thin soft bones and head is typically consumed together with the caviar and rest of the fish, including the tail!  Enjoy the crunchy, mildly salty natural flavour of this very unique fish.  Grilled, fried, or oven roasted, this fish is an absolute delight to eat.

Comes in 8 pieces per tray.

Thank you from a foreigner

Thank you Pacific. I have been craving this. I'm a chef from USA and know how to cook it. Order has not come yet I'm so excited. Definitely if things come in well I will explore more options as this is my first time. Next taste bud on my agenda will be crawfish and soft shell crab. Yummy! 😋
