If it's つみれ(tsumire) that I love, commonly put into a soup.

味噌汁(miso-shiru), 鍋物(nabemono) like the one-pot dish and so on...

Taking one example of many...

water, 昆布(konbu; tangle weed)
酒(Japanese sake)
大根(daikon; Japanese white radish)
しょうゆ(soy sorce), salt
長ねぎ(naga-negi), せり(seri; Japanese parsley)

It sounds good!
But I think it's not match with 豚骨(tonkotsu; pork bone) ramen, because of fat/lard.
Udon is popular.

It's often cooked with pot-herb to neutralize the smell of fish.
I want to eat too, now here is lunch time.(^-^)

I don't know in what shape (frozen, fresh, etc.) they came in, but be sure to "cook" them in the soup, be it hot pot or ramen or udon soup.

Are they the white ones? They are chinese, not japanese, and I love them. You can have them a few different ways, I've had them steamed in a sauce but usually cut in half and put in soup. You have to be careful how long you cook them - too long and they go like rubber. And I wouldnt cook them in the soup, it would go too fishy. It is best to cook them in hot water then pop them into the soup just before you eat it.

Esteban7211,

Almost all Asian countries enjoy "fish balls" but each one is quite different. The safest way is to try them in light soup. Then you can start your adventures.
