      I am a 17 year old who has recently been diagnosed with celiac disease, and I love Korean food. I want to learn how to make Korean foods that I can’t eat so I can still taste how it would taste like. I really want to make tteokbokki with fish cake but all fish cakes are made from wheat and I can’t eat that.
      Could someone tell me where I could buy gluten free fish cakes or how to make the flat fish cakes as gluten free?

      Never made them but i would look into rice flour or gluten free flour. Traditional Chinese fish balls and cakes are just made from fish. They have no fillers. Just process the fish into a paste.

      Was you able or have you tried to make them? I’m only wondering because my son is celiac as well. It’s been a struggle reperfecting our Korean cooking. I’ve over come many cooking challenges while switching every thing to gluten free. So please feel free to reach out and keep us updated on your progress. Must say what works one day may not work the next gluten free flour can be a tricky thing.

      I’m a little late to the discussion, but I think kamaboko and narutomaki are gluten free! They’re Japanese steamed fish cakes you commonly see in ramen. They don’t have the crunch of Korean eomuk fish cakes, but they’re delicious nonetheless.

      “I have tried to keep it super simple and basic so that anyone can cook.
      -Any white fish fillets ( I used Basa): 400 gms.
      – Boiled Potatoes: 2 -Green Chilies: 2 Finely chopped.
      -Lemon Juice: of 2 lemons
      -salt to taste. -Olive oil/ any vegetable oil: 1 tbsp. Method: Step 1: Wash and chop the fish so well that it becomes almost like mincemeat.
      Step 2: Mash the boiled potatoes.
      Step 3: In a bowl, mix the fish mince, potatoes, chilies, dill, lemon juice, salt, pepper, carrom seeds, coriander together. The consistency should be dough like so that you could roll them into balls. Cook them over medium heat on a nonstick pan till both sides turn brown. So you can try this recipe.”
