Vegetable Fish Balls

Fish Balls are commonly smooth in texture with opaque white color that it pops when deep fried. It can contain much extender at times using flour. In this recipe, freshly chopped vegetables are added to give a different texture. There is no exact measurements yet is indicated in this recipe These golden Fish Balls are excellent served with sweet chili sauce as an appetizer or finger food. Hard to stop at just one. This very simple way of preparation allows one to appreciate its mild flavor and texture. It is wonderful mixed with fish and vegetables and made into deep fried patties or balls. Salmon is a more oily fish and it made the mixture a little easier to handle. I opted for vegetables that are more familiar and easily available here like carrots and green onions. All the ingredients worked really well together and I am pleased with the outcome. This dish has become a favorite at our house.
