As you know, we Japanese often eat fishes.
Sushi, sashimi, broiled fish…. “dried fish” called “Himono” (干物, ひもの) as well.
Drying fish is an old way to preserve it for later use. But Japanese are still enjoying textures and taste of “Himono”, different from broiled fish. You can see a lot type of “Himono” at stores.
Many stoves in Japan have a grill for fishes.
It is said that “Himono” has richer in nutrients than Raw fish :)
Some Izakaya has Himono dishes, try this healthy foods :)
