Daiei: Shirasu White Bait (40g / 1.41oz)
Shirasu (しらす) is a Japanese word that typically refers to the boiled and partially dried fry(immature fish) of iwashi(sardine). The tiny little fish can be found in almost any Japanese supermarket, and are popular as a topping on rice, or used as an ingredient in various dishes. To be considered shirasu, the fish should be less than 2cm in length. The term is used almost exclusively to refer to sardine fry, however, the word can also be used more broadly to refer to the fry of herring, sweetfish, conger eel, and others as well.
