Narutomaki (鳴門巻き/なると巻き?) or naruto (ナルト/なると?) is a type of kamaboko, or cured fish surimi produced in Japan. Each slice of naruto has a pink or red spiral pattern, which resembles the Naruto whirlpools in the Naruto Strait between Awaji Island and Shikoku in Japan. It is also the inspiration for the name of the eponymous character of Masashi Kishimoto's popular manga series, Naruto, and is used as a slang term for the at sign ("@").
