  1. Hi, can you please help me create a low cost fish ball, kikiam and squid ball recipe?

    Thanks a lot in advance..and God bless!!

    1. it is easy. use a lot of textured vegetable protein (TVP) starch or flour and artificial flavorings to it. Our favorites from street sides are basically made of this. Very little to fish and meat at all.

      Or the other hand, try making more expensive but high quality product. Sell it to people who preferred it.

  2. Hi, I just wanna ask about the Fish cracker recipe..Can you give me a copy it and how it is processed?I’m planning to have a fish cracker business.
