Dried anchovies

Mareun-myeolchi 마른멸치

Dried anchovies are sold in a package, a plastic bag, or box and are sorted by size.

Smaller anchovies are usually served as a snack by toasting them with soy sauce, sugar, and hot pepper paste to make the side dish myeolchibokkeum. Larger myeolchi are used in the stock of many Korean dishes like soondubu.

Personally I like to eat the larger dried anchovies by themselves (after removing the heads and intestines, or course : )). I dip them in hot pepper paste and eat them with rice. Very delicious! The tiny bones of myeolchi contain a lot of calcium and are really good for you.
