There's a side dish that was served with Korean barbeque that I didn't care for. It was peanuts with these little tiny silver 물고기, about the size of guppies. The peanuts were OK, but eating the tiny fish was like chewing on little pieces of wood. I'm still not even sure I was supposed to be eating them.
Up 'til now, I was reading the posts thinking, "Oh, you sissies!" But this one....ugh!
Aren't these 멸치? I'll gladly eat them, plus any portion you guys don't finish
These are called "dilis" in Tagalog, "ikan teri" or "ikan bilis" in Indonesian, and "gerang" in Balinese. I just love these - well, perhaps because I grew up with them. I even eat the bitter heads - those are especially good.
