One of the most ordered appetizers at my restaurant was our Spicy Fish Balls. These tender and light appetizers have a chuncky texture unlike other mushy type of seafood balls. They go great as a starter to a meal or just as a treat with your favorite beer or softdrink.

  1. 1. Rinse white fish under cold water, pat dry and cut into 1 inch pieces.
  2. 2. Boil potatoes skin on, cool and peel. In large bowl rough mash. Set aside.
  3. 3. Chop the green onions including 2 or 3 inches of the green blades. Heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a large frying pan and sauté half of the onions. Add milk, ½ tsp of salt and heat to a simmer. Add fish and simmer on low for 5 to 6 minutes. If fish has bones remove them at this time.
  4. 4. Add fish mixture to mashed potatoes along with the remaining onion, parsley, cayenne pepper, nutmeg, ginger, 2 tbsp olive oil and lemon juice. Taste now before adding the egg to see if any more salt is needs.
  5. 5. Add 1 beaten egg to the mixture and gently mix then refrigerate until mixture firms – about 30 minutes.
  6. 6. Using three bowls beat 1 egg in one bowl, put ¾ cup flour and a 1 tsp of paprika in another and in the last bowl place 1 cup of breadcrumbs.
  7. 7. Take fish mixture from refrigerator and shape into golf sized balls.
  8. 8. Heat 1/2 inch olive oil into a frying pan.
  9. 9. While oil is heating roll each ball in flour then in the beaten egg and finally in the breadcrumbs. Fry over medium-high heat, until golden brown turning so as to brown all over.
  10. 10. Drain on a paper towel. Great with garlic mayo (“alioli”) and/or tomato sauce ("sofrito").
  11. Variation: Step it up by substituting shrimp for fish. For shrimp shell, devein and cut into 1/4 pieces. Reduce cooking time from 5 to 6 mins to 2 to 3 minutes.
