Tsumire Soup with Ponzu

Posted December 8th, 2010 in Food No Comments »

Tsumire – fish meat balls – is a great item for soup or steamboat.  I got frozen tsumire from an Asian grocery shop recently.  This Kibun brand tsumire doesn’t contain any flavorings or preservatives, and the ground fish bones are also mixed into the fish balls to boost the calcium level. 🙂

I made a quick soup with this tsumire for my breakfast this morning.  Very simple – simmer the ingredients in dashi stock, and eat with ponzu

<Tsumire Soup> serves 2

  • 150g tsumire (fish meat balls)
  • 1/2 cup frozen shiitake mushroom (or 2~4 fresh shiitake mushroom)
  • 1 bunch spinach
  • 2 cups dashi 
  • few teaspoons of ponzu (adjust to your taste)
  1. Wash and cut spinach into 3cm.
  2. Place dashi and shiitake in a sauce pan, and bring to gentle simmer.  
  3. Add tsumire, and simmer for 2~3 minutes.
  4. Add spinach, and enjoy with ponzu.
