Kosher shrimp delight by: Ben Morris

Kosher shrimp

At first glance, you might wonder why "shrimp" might be sold in Jewish grocery stores, but upon further inspection you soon discover that Jacob Le Pecheur "shrimp" is actually kosher fish that is shaped into shrimp and aims to taste like it as well.

Made In Israel, the "shrimp" is created through the Japanese process of Surimi which minces up, mashes and generally reformats fish into another form, so you end up with the "shrimp".

Taste-wise it is quite appealing, the seasoning in the Surimi is said to replicate real shrimp. Not having eaten real shrimp, I have no idea if it tastes like the real thing, but this kosher "shrimp" provides a treat as well as something novel to eat.

Best served as a starter with some salad or as a light meal with a portion of chips.

Cooking is simple and straightforward, just pop it into the oven for about 20 minutes, turn over a couple of times and you've got cooked "shrimp" ready to eat.
