    awalde's Note:

    This is a simple recipe based that most of children will like. These fish balls can be served as appetizer with a salsa sauce or as starter with the suggested vegetable mix (salad). I used potatoes that after boiling, peeling and mashing they hold together. If you don’t have this kind of potatoes, please add 1 egg and some 2 or tablespoon of flour.

    Serving suggestion


    1. 1
      First of all make all the ingredients ready.
    2. 2
      In a big bowl combine potatoes, tuna fish, parsley, spices and salt. Work with a fork. If it doesn’t stick together add 1 egg and about 2 tablespoon of flour.
    3. 3
      Form walnuts sized balls, coat first with egg and then with the breadcrumbs. Flat them slightly and place them on a dish.
    4. 4
      Preheat a non sticky pan with about 2 tablespoon oil to medium temperature.
    5. 5
      Fry the meatball on the first size when golden brown, turn, add 2 tablespoon oil and brown the second size.
    6. 6
      For the serving suggestion combine all the vegetable in a bowls toss, eventually add some salt (I didn’t). Serve with lemon and olive oil.
    7. 7
      If you prefer serve this with a fresh salsa.
    8. 8
    9. 9
      Note: this looks wonderful with some fresh green salad.

      We loved these tasty fish cakes! I shaped mine into more of a patty so that I could fry in less oil and still get a nice crispy crust. I topped with a sauce of a little sour cream mixed with some salsa. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
