This is a Japanese Appetizer and very good!
3 teaspoons salt
6 Tablespoons sugar
3 teaspoons Ajinomoto (MSG)
1 carrot, cut in thin strips with a peeler
1 large onion, chopped
Mix together all ingredients and add slowly to the fish mixture. Spoon mixture out of bowl with a teaspoon or scant cookie scoop and drop into hot deep fat carefully. Cakes will turn a golden brown when cooked. Drain cakes on brown paper bag before serving. These are good hot or cold. The size should be about the size of a 2 bite fritter.
This recipe is from a Hawaiian friend and has been used many, many times in my family. We really enjoy it.
