Baked Fishballs

Fishballs are the kind of street food I grew up eating – and I love it! Only thing is that it’s very unhealthy in every way imaginable. It’s heavily processed and it’s deep fried carelessly. So, I wanted to do a version of it with just fresh ingredients and natural flavors. No junk!

Well, it’s not quite nostalgic, but who cares? It’s scrumptious and fun to eat. And I can taste the fish! Imagine that!

Ingredients: White Fish Filets (Cod, Whiting, Sole, Halibut or Tilapia), Garlic, Chives, Salt & Pepper, Olive Oil, Dipping Sauce (Sweet Chili, Wasabi, Tartar, etc.), Cooking oil spray

Directions: Preheat oven to 400F. Cut fish filets into chunks, mince garlic and chop chives. Mash everything together in a food processor (or you can do it by hand) adding salt & pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. Pour mixture into a strainer and squeeze to get rid of as much liquid as possible. It’s important that the mixture is not wet. Transfer to a bowl and roll into small balls no larger than a golf ball. As you roll, squeeze out more liquid in a separate container, if there’s still some left. Place balls in a baking pan coated with cooking oil spray and stick in the oven for about 20 minutes or so. Be careful not to overcook or it’ll dry out. Serve with your choice of dipping sauce.
