Fish cakes are popular with children. The savory flavor of fish cakes, fried with a delicious sauce and veggies, makes a great side dish. Since this can be used for more than a week, and it tastes good cold, moms like to make plenty of it in advanced. Store it in the refrigerator and serve it with your meals.

Divide 3 fish cakes in half and cut them thinly.
Slice ½ cup worth of an onion thinly, julienne ¼ cup worth of a carrot, and cut ¼ cup worth of some hot peppers or sweet peppers, depending on your tastes. I used some type of Korean pepper.

Add the onion, carrot, and peppers. Stir them.
Add 1½ Tbsp of soy sauce, 1 tsp of sugar, ½ tsp of minced garlic, 1½ Tbsp of corn syrup, and ½ Tbsp of water. Fry until the onion has cooked.
