Suzuhiro Kamaboko

Kamaboko

Kamaboko is a seafood product that is steamed, grilled, fried, or poached. Kamaboko is made from white fish, which is filleted, pounded into paste, mixed with salt, sugar, egg whites, fish sauce and Japanese sake. You can enjoy the goodness of fish with a delicious flavor and a unique texture-smooth and chewy.
Kamaboko is made from all natural ingredients: wild white fish, egg whites, salt, sugar, fish sauce and Japanese sake. It contains no artificial coloring or seasonings, and no preservatives. Kamaboko's white color and unique texture come from all-natural ingredients and are the result of interaction of fish, water, and salt during the production process.

Suzuhiro Kamaboko

The history of Kamaboko started in the Heian Period (8th century). There is a famous story about a celebration dinner for a minister at which Kamaboko was served. At that time, Kamaboko was ground fish meat molded onto a bamboo stick before cooking. The shape was similar to “Gama-no-ho” the top of the cattail plant, and so got its name Kamaboko. This is where the name Kamaboko comes from.
Suzuhiro launched production of Kamaboko in 1865. At that time, the main business of Suzuhiro was retailing seafood. The fourth owner of Suzuhiro, Gon-emon Murataya, started making and selling Kamaboko as a side business.
From the end of the 19th century through the first half of the 20th century, the Kamaboko business increased in size. The sixth owner of Suzuhiro expnaded the market beyond Odawara to Tokyo, the capital of Japan.
