Boiled salted kembung fish was dyeing in liquid smoke 1%, 2%, and 3%, then do analyze Total Plate Count and organoleptic during storage on 0, 3, 5, and 7 days at room temperature. The result shows that boiled salted kembung fish on a microbiologically test as a control treatment only stand until the third day of storage, mean while with the application of liquid smoke 1%, 2%, and 3% the boiled salted kembung can stand until the seventh day of storage.
