[Ajiro Minced Squid Cutlets]

The flavor of squid will softly fill your mouth and give you a real taste of fishing village home cooking

Ajiro Harbor has flourished since ancient times as a good natural harbor, and for generations the town's fisherfolk have been bringing ashore boatload after boatload of horse mackerel, mackerel, squid and more. One delicious dish which makes full use of all this fresh seafood is "Ajiro minced squid cutlets". Minced squid and vegetables are added to paste made from fish brought ashore at the town harbor, and the mixture is formed into cakes which people in homes and restaurant kitchens then cook after adding their own special flavorings. With their soft texture and a squid flavor that gets stronger the more you chew, these cutlets have a kind of home cooking taste you can only get in a real fishing village.
