In this chewy, salty otsumami (food that pairs with alcohol), the mantle or frill (known as “himo” in Japanese) of fresh scallops caught off the coast of Hokkaido are boiled then baked in a seasoning made from a sardine fish sauce and a special, flavorful stock made from konbu, bonito and shiitake that enhances the seafood flavors. The umami deepens the more you chew. Hokkaido Hinode Shokuhin is known for their additive-free snacks and is located in Nemuro City in Hokkaido, the easternmost city in Japan. Tourists trek to Nemuro City to capture the first glimpse of sunrise as the sun peaks over the eastern horizon and to enjoy the city’s fresh local seafood.
Suggested uses: Enjoy as is. Pairs great with alcohol including sake!
