    Hi everyone. I bought a 1 pound box of dried anchovies from my local Korean market to make this recipe and others. Problem is, they were in the freezer section of the store, so when they thaw out, they are quite wet and no longer crispy. What is the best way to get them crisp again? Oven? Skillet? Dry pan or oiled? Any help at all would be most appreciated. Thank you.

    You can dry them out in the open air or on the kitchen counter. Just take them out and put them in a large shallow basket or large baking sheet and let them dry out a bit for a couple of hours. They shouldn’t be too dry, they should still be a little moist. Then put them into a plastic bag or zipper lock bag and put them in the freezer.

      Thank you Maanchi, worked perfectly.
      I have one other question if I may? Could I use sweet chili sauce (Mae Ploy), instead of the rice or corn syrup, or would this change the flavor too much? Thank you so much for this site and all the knowledge. I am here almost everyday just to learn something new.
