I sometimes crave for Filipino goodies but too bad that the Filipino market is only open on Sundays. Yesterday, I wanted to have “fishballs”. When my son and I had a trip to the neighborhood supermarket, I immediately checked if they have sweet chili sauce. So I got a big bottle and checked out the Korean “fishcake” or “o-meok” as they call it. The fishcakes come in different shapes. I got the small rounded ones, just like the Filipino “fishballs”.
The 150-gram bag of “o-meok” is 1,520 while the 435-gram bottle of the sweet chili sauce is 5,100 won for a total of 6,350 won or about 6 USD?!
The Korean fishballs is actually prepared as soup or side dish. Instead of deep-frying, like we do with the Filipino fishballs, I just pan-fried this until brown. I actually wanted them crisp but I couldn’t wait! LOL…
Anyway, there is no information on the packaging on how many calories does the serving of the fishcake has. So eat in moderation.
This one isn’t too fishy and it doesn’t make our apartment smell ;p
