Kamaboko

蒲鉾

Kamaboko is a type of fish-paste or fish puree made from the flesh of white fish such as pollock or hake, so the dish is not suitable for vegetarians.


Kamaboko


Kamaboko is made into a kind of fish-loaf and slices can be found in udon (noodle) dishes, miso soup and chawan mushi.

Kamaboko makes a great side-dish with sake and a drizzle of soy sauce. The kamaboko pictured is served with beet sauce, a first for me in Japan, in a British-style pub near Kanda Station.

Rubbery in texture, versions of kamaboko are also eaten in Korea and China.
