Fishcake is called "eomuk" or "odeng" (a wrong expression derived from Japanese word, "oden") in Korea. It is a processed seafood product made of ground white fish and other ingredients such as potato starch, sugar and vegetables. In Korea, fishcake is one of the popular ingredients, used for soup ("eomuk-tang"), side dish ("eomuk-bokkeum") and kimbap (Korean style maki). Especially, "eomuk-tang", served on a skewer in broth, is a very popular street food along with ddukbokgi, which people of all ages love. The traditional Korean fishcake is thin and rectangular shaped, but alternative shapes and flavours are also available these days.
