These have a very middle-eastern flavor. They taste just like something you could order at most Israeli/Mizrachi restaurants. When I was living in a mircaz klita (an absorption center for new immigrants) in Jerusalem, a Jewish-Iraqi family taught me how to make these for Shabbat. The lady shaped them into little footballs, but I just make small patties. These would be great on a grill as well! Enjoy.
This is my fish chowder with leeks and corn. This recipe is kosher and is a dairy meal, so I used a vegetarian chicken-flavored stock. (The brand is Imagine "no-chicken" stock and can be found in the health food section of the grocery store). This is a great heavy chowder for cold rainy days. The ingredients are inexpensive and the whole thing is prepared in one pot, so there is very little cleanup! Enjoy!
