Japanese dried fish jerky

A Japanese friend recently treated me with some dried fish flavored with mirin, sake and soy that he briefly toasted on a dry frying pan. I forgot the name, I think K___. Has any one tried this? Its really good.

    Haven't heard of that, but I'll try to remember to look for it on my next trip to our local Nijiya market. Probably near the dried cuttlefish snacks...

      Was it more like fresh fish seasoned and partially dried, or really dessicated and stable for long term storage?

      Did it look like these split and dried for one night like these?

      Or was it thin, and really dessicated like these fugu:
