Popular in Ehime Prefecture, jakoten is a local fish cake made from fresh small fish found in the Uwa Sea. The fish are minced with their skin and bones and shaped into cakes which are then deep-fried. The resulting fish cake is delicious and flavorful, and can be found in simmered dishes, hot pots, or in this unique mixed rice dish. The combination of rice and barley creates a delightful, chewy texture while the addition of local vegetables and an umami-rich seasoning results in a wholesome, heart warming dish.
