Fish balls…something I wanted to make for quite some time now. I never found a good recipe though.
As my gynecologist wants me to eat fish at least 3 times a week I need to have some new ideas to eat fish in various ways. Otherwise I get bored 😉
So fish balls (instead of meatballs) sounded perfect to me. As I haven’t been able to find a good recipe for it, I just invented one my self and it turned out to be such a tasty one! These fish balls are healthy and delicious at the same time. But I thought it would be nice to add a little dip to it. Then you can also serve it as an appetizer or on a party!
So the finishing touch is to serve it with a wonderful asparagus cream!! It’s still asparagus season here and again, I love to invent new recipes with vegetables!
Wash the asparagus and cut off the bottom of asparagus as it is tough and stringy. Cut the rest in small pieces and put in a pan with water. Add salt and let it boil for 15 minutes.
Take the asparagus out of the water and put in a blender. Add 2 tbsp of cooking water and the grated almonds. Blend well. Sprinkle a bit of olive oil on top.
500 g // 18 oz codfish (I used frozen)
1 small zucchini (grated)
3 tbsp breadcrumbs
1 stock cube
olive oil extra vergine
Bring a large pan of water to boil and add the stock cube. When the water boils add the codfish. When the water boils again let it boil for 5 minutes. Take it out of the water and put in a large bowl. Add the grated zucchini, egg and breadcrumbs. Mix well by hand. If you notice that you can’t make solid balls of it add a bit of breadcrumbs. Now make small balls by hand. Heat a bit of olive oil in a frying pan and add the fish balls for 15 minutes.
Buon Appetito! ♥
