    CoolMonday's Note:

    I played around with this one for a long time. Tried different ethnicity and different methods of cooking. I am very happy with the recipe I finally perfected. It is mostly Asian in flavor with a little bit of Thai thrown in. The white wine I used is Fetzer's Gewurztraminer.

      Fantastic!!! Great blend of flavors & really not hard to do (don't get shook over the long list of ingredients). The aroma was enticing. I served this to friends last night & got rave reviews. (In fact one of my friends just called me & remarked on how wonderful they were,again) One friend preferred them without the sauce. Thanks Cool Monday!

      WOW! DH & I loved this one! The flavors are just incredible...tart, sweet, tangy, spicy, a treat in every bite. The fish & shrimp mixture is easy to work with. The texture is right for forming into balls, not too mushy or too stiff. I ended up with 24 balls. I do think they are tasty enough to stand alone, but the sauce really adds that something special...I plan to increase the amounts next time so we have more to cover the rice. What a terrific job CoolMonday!! This is a wonderful use of contest ingredients for RSC #6.
