Heshikozuke refers to pickled fish from the Fukui Prefecture of Japan. It is a Kansai cuisine made of pickled mackerel, sardine, codfish, blowfish, etc., which are caught abundantly in spring. People make heshikozuke by pickling these fish under stone with salt and rice bran. It produces an attractive aroma when baked, and has traditionally been loved as a featured food for late autumn, new year, and spring festivals in the Wakasa area.
