Dace Paste

Dace Paste: A dace is a small fish - different species in different parts of the world. Dace paste is fish paste (puree of fish) used extensively in Asian cooking as an ingredient to more complex dishes or to make imitation crab or lobster. It is a high-protein food that uses fish and fish parts that might otherwise be used as animal feed or fertilizer.
Breakfast in South China, at least for those who could afford it, was congee - white rice porridge with lettuce and dace paste and bamboo shoots.
