Fish Balls

Easy Appetiser or Main Meal

Any cooked fish can be used for these miniature fish balls but they are especially good with smoked haddock. Salmon is also a favorite and so easy as you can use canned salmon for this one. Tuna can also be used and is equally good.

They make a great starter dish, appetizer or horsdoeuvres and can be served with a butter sauce or any sauce you prefer. Serve them with a small green salad and you have a very easy dish which will look and taste amazing.

If your kids shy away from fish dishes, this is one of the best ways to get them to enjoy a good fish dinner. By adding a few French fries for the kids you have another great dish and this will temp even the most difficult of eaters - so easy to prepare and the fish will give them the nourishment they need.

It's a winner every time.
