So, what is fish surimi?

Fish surimi is a seafood ingredient that is processed into a versatile paste-like substance. Made by blending minced fish meat with other ingredients, such as starch and egg white, it is then formed into various shapes, including sticks, flakes, and chunks. This low-fat, high-protein ingredient is commonly used in many Asian dishes, such as sushi, stir-fries, and soups. It has a mild, slightly sweet taste that pairs well with a variety of flavors, making it a popular choice for adding texture and protein to meals while also being a healthy alternative to meat-based products.
