    Mme M's Note:

    These are like Spanish croquettas. The spice mix used is quite delicate. Serve with a side dish that is crisp or that is spicy.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 2-4

    Yield:

    kofta

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Poach fish in salted water for 10 minutes. Remove when cooked.
    2. 2
      Boil peeled and quartered potatoes in the same water for 15 minutes. Remove and mash them.
    3. 3
      While the fish is cooling, boil the potatoes. When the fish is cool enough to handle, tear the fish into pieces, feeling for any remaining bones (remove them).
    4. 4
      Drain the potatoes when they are done, and lightly mash them with a fork in a bowl. Add the chopped coriander and parsley, crushed garlic and finely chopped onions while the potatoes are still warm. Add the salt, pepper, cinnamon, and cumin.
    5. 5
      Add the fish. Blend it well, but don't thoroughly mash the fish. Adjust the flavor to your liking.
    6. 6
      Heat the oil for frying.
    7. 7
      Make walnut-sized balls of this fish mixture in the palm of your hand. Dip the pieces in the beaten egg. Next, dip the pieces in coarse bread crumbs.
    8. 8
      Fry 4 - 5 pieces at a time in hot oil until brown on both sides. Remove to drain on a plate lined with paper towels.
    9. 9
      Serve with squeezed lemon.

      ohhhh my goodness these are easy and ohhh so delicious. Ate some with the Slata Tunisiya Slata Tunisiya - Tunisian Salad till I thought my tummy would burst, then had a few cold today for lunch. Made a second batch and doubled it...putting them aside in freezer for future cooking up whenever I want a delicious snack. I think these would even make great appetizers, they are just so darned good. Thank You for a great recipe Melissa.
