Fish Paste, Japanese

Japanese fish pastes account for about 20% of the total fish market. The paste is shaped and moulded onto bamboo sticks, in the form of a Middle-Eastern kofta-kebab, then grilled over a fire. They are then known as 'chikuwa'. The tradition dates back to the Heian period (794-1192), but there are now many local varieties.
