Kamaboko Fan Slices 23

Posted on January 17, 2010 by Debra

There’s been some interest in how to slice kamaboko to look like fans.  For those new to Japanese foods, kamaboko is a steamed and pressed fish cake that is usually pink and white.   You can find it easily in any Asian market in the refrigerated or frozen food section.

Kamaboko is a  standard garnish for noodle soups like ramen or udon.  If you’re from Hawaii… saimin and fried noodles!  And of course they add color and protein to any bento box.   Here’s a bento from last year with kamaboko slices.

Anyway, without further adieu… here’s a short video of fan-style kamaboko slices.
