Hanpen is steamed surimi, which is cut into bits according to use. They are normally used in stews or soups, especially the wonderful dish Oden, which is made using all kinds of wonderful bits made of fish and shellfish, tofu, carrots, radish, boiled eggs, and meat that has simmered for 2-3 hours. Served with freshly steamed rice and karashi mustard it's truly spectacular, especially on a cold winter night.
They can also just be heated in the microwave oven and enjoyed on a bowl of freshly cooked rice.
