A Simple Snack Made with Leftover Kamaboko

A Simple Snack Made with Leftover Kamaboko

This is a light snack that is made from kamaboko. Use colored kamaboko to give these cute snacks depth and extra flair. I made this with the leftovers from the kamaboko roses that I prepared.

Ingredients: 2 servings

1 (enough for 10-12 cuts)
(Leftover kamaboko)

Wasabi (optional)

Coarsely ground black pepper

1. This is kamaboko that has been sliced into about 1-1.5 cm thin. You might be able to slice it thinner with a peeler and use the pieces in a salad...
2. Remove from the board and cut into squares. I used this sort of kamaboko to make the roses this time. I am making two pieces this time, but you can make 3-4 with 1 stick.
3. Use the thin peelings to make a salad or flower petals.
4. Coat Step 2 with wasabi if you like, and place a slice of cheese that is cut one size smaller than the kamaboko.
5. In this one I squeezed some mayonnaise onto the wasabi, squeezed some mayonnaise onto the side not spread with sesame, topped with bacon, and sprinkled with ground black pepper.
6. *Feel free to top it with whatever you like.
7. Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil or lightly coat in oil, line up Step 5, and bake until golden brown in a toaster oven or similar.
8. Transfer to a serving platter, and it is done. It has turned out to be a square-shaped dish with cute pink edges.
