Salted shrimp - what do you do with them?

CJT | Sep 23, 2007 11:57 AM

A new oriental supermarket opened in our area and I spotted large jars of "salted shrimp" from Korea in the refigerated case. The shrimp are very tiny, about the size of a quite small clove of garlic. Can anyone tell me how these are eaten: are they a snack to be eaten right out of the jar? do they go into other dishes? if so, do they have to be cooked first? what dishes would one make using these? are the raw, cooked, or just brined and therefor edible without cooking?

Any ideas or recommendations are appreciated.
