    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.

      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!
