"Meow!!!" - With an innocent cute kitty face.
Oh Kiki my mysterious black cat! What are you doing in the kitchen? Why aren't you asleep as you always are at this hour, oh you lazy fat cat?!
Meow! The smell of the fish woke me up and with eyes half closed I walked here and FISH I saw... Can I have some?? Meoowww...
This mackerel fish paste sure makes my cat go crazy hoping that he will get some! :-) He was waiting while we prepared the fish in the kitchen!
Simple home made fish paste, using fresh mackerel fillets.
:: Ingredients ::
Fresh/frozen mackerel fillets (remove the skin & bones)
Some corn starch
1. On a tough wooden chopper board, and with a big knife - start chopping on the fillets till they are finely minced.
2. Add a sprinkle of table salt for seasoning. You may add a dash of pepper too, if you like. Keep on mincing the meat, until it is fine and the texture becomes like a paste.
3. Add about 1 tablespoon of corn starch to the paste and combine well, by using the knife in a mincing motion, or with your hands.
4. The fish paste is ready when the texture is smooth and sticky. Use immediately or refrigerate in plastic/tupperware.
Note: Most white fillet fish can be used to make delicious fish paste.
