Japanease traditional food " kamaboko "

HISTORY

The first time kamaboko products appeared in Japanease literature is 1115.
At the time, it was in a shape similar to chikuwa (a surimi seafood in the shape of athick tube), but after a few hundread years, kamaboko loaf on a wooden plate, which is a the shape today, came about.
Subsequently, various kamaboko products utilizing "local fish" by region were produced all around Japan.
Then finaly, the frozen surimi tecnology was established, and it had arevolutionary effect on kamaboko industry.
With this, kamaboko spread all around the world, and the word KAMABOKO became part of the international language.

Manufacturing Method

By removing the bones and skin from the fish,it is soaked in wataer, and minced with salt. Then, the protein starts to dissolve and mesh together.
Once it is heated and finished, the meshed structure becomes storonger and gives it the elastic texture. In adittion, the species of raw material surimi are as shown in table below. Different fish are used according to the kamaboko product.

A factory of experts. Five techniques used in kamaboko production.

UBE KAMA's kamaboko production method uses a traditional indirect grilling technique called "Yakinuki".
Through using this traditional technique, our experts honed their methods, and the various cooking techniques (grilling, steaming, broiling and frying) improved even more.
Kamaboko, even though it's made from fish, is more flexible than fish, and can be used and served in many ways.
