    Sweet Chilli Marinated Mussels

    A fish shop in the shopping centre in Ringwood, near my house, sells marinated mussels. I love their Asian flavour but they are very pricey.

    In Japan, I used to enjoy many traditional food made from fish such as ‘Chikuwa’, ‘Kamaboko’, ‘Fish Sausages’, etc. One of my favourite is deep-fried fish patties with squid pieces in them.
