Salty Smoked Sweet Shrimp and Smoked Ovalipes Punctatus with Tasty Rich Brown Meat -Nanpo Tometaro Shoten in Yoichi-
July 9th, 2014
Nanpo Tometaro Shoten (南保留太郎商店) is a smoked food specialty store in Yoichi town located in the western part of Otaru city and was founded in 1950. There is a building just near Yoichi fishing port. A smoked sweet shrimp (甘エビの燻製), a smoked ovalipes punctatus (ヘラ蟹の燻製), a smoked salmon (鮭の燻製) are famous. The store was small, but there was full of cleanliness. Customers can do each smoked products tasting and those will form the basis for their decision in case of the purchase.
Smoked Ovalipes Punctatus
I purchased a smoked ovalipes punctatus consisting (4 pieces) and I brought it home and ate it. An owner said that it seemed to stay good for 3 days in a refrigerator. The price of smoked ovalipes punctatus was JPY 980.
How to eat is same as a boiled crab. A paper written about how to eat was attached.
Because foods were smoked, I supposed that I could eat all body, but it was different. Shells surely had a firm place and a soft place. I cut a shell with scissors. To be frank, there were few crab meats, but a smoked fragrance was appetizing. In addition, rich brown meat was too tasty!
Smoked Sweet Shrimp
I purchased smoked sweet shrimps and planned to eat those outdoor at once. A break space was established at an edge of eaves, and it was usable freely. The sweet prawns having just fished were smoked with only salt. At first I ate one bite. Because there was not particularly strong taste, I guessed that the taste was only smoked sweet shrimp. However, salty taste gradually spreaded over in my mouth whenever I ate one bite. In addition, I put smoked prawns in my mouth in sequence and could not stop eating. This was addictive slow food.
