Above Korean fish cake (Eomuk, 어묵 or Odeng, 오뎅) is what I often use in my fish cake stir fry and some times in my fish cake soup. Other shapes (e.g. round balls, long thin stick or square etc.) are also available as well.
You can normally find it in the freezer section of a Korean grocery store (if you’re outside of Korea). In Korea, it’s kept in a refrigerator section. This 1 kg (2.2 pounds) fish cake costs about AUD $9.
What it is made of and how it is made?
Typically more than 50% of the ingredient is Surimi then followed by wheat flour (30%), carrots, onion, salt, sugar and other added ingredients. Once these ingredients are mixed together, they are kneaded, shaped then boiled or steamed or fried.
Do you want to make this yourself from scratch? Then try my recipes. You have two options. One for korean fish cake side dish and one for korean fish cake soup. It’s very easy to make and tastes healthier!
