    Default Stinky Fish Fried Rice

    I was disappointed by these dried salted fish. They were not
    fermented like I expected. They just tasted kinda musty.

    Here's a picture of one of the fish with some of the other
    ingredients:

    (There were two fish rather than 1 in this package for ~$16)

    I didn't know how to shred the fish - it's pretty leathery. So I
    just ripped off the skin, ripped out as many bones as possible and
    shaved the fillets with my santoku. I used marinated chicken, green
    onions, fresh carrot, and a little bit of fresh (not frozen) shrimp
    in small slices. Garlic, frozen peas and some stray corn. Soy and
    oyster sauce were the only sauces I used, and all that was in the
    marinade.

    It was still pretty tasty, but not fishy, and disappointingly not
    pungent at all:

    This is what I've used in the past, and what I'll continue using
    from now on. This stuff has the stink and pungency I was looking
    for in the salted fish:

    My previous jar, with a piece at it's side, and the resulting dish:

    Leftovers for breakfast. Then to the dentist. He oughta appreciate
    that ;-)

    Looks tasty. My mom always loved the jarred herring. I've never tried it.

    In Thailand they make Kao Kluk Kapi - fried rice with shrimp paste - Kapi.
    Perhaps a dash of this along with your stinky fish would bring out the
    flavour you are looking for?
