Foodie Friday: Fish Cakes

Fish cakes: fried, thin versions of fish filling

fish cake

There are so many kinds of fish cakes in Chinese cuisine. (Maybe because the words for fish and abundance sound awfully alike.) Some are brightly colored and swim around in noodles and broth. Others, chunkier and meatball-like, adorn vegetables–and also go well in stuffed tofu.

Once in a while, though, I like mine spiced and fried up. This version gives you a chewier texture and makes for great snacks. (Don’t forget to be liberal with the five-spice and other flavorings!)

Do you have a favorite fish snack or dish?

    I haven’t bought fish balls or fish cake for a while. I’ll have to remember to buy some.
