Last updated on 2021-08-24T02:54:56 by Olayemi Michael Bsc (nutrition and dietetics)




Fish Balls are dish popular in southern China, Hong Kong, Macau, Iceland and Taiwan. I choose the recipe owing to it richness in protein, vitamins and minerals. It is very nutrient dense and can be practice easily at home.
Fish Balls


  • 1 lb. white fish
  • 1 egg
  • 3 oz. (2/3 cup) cornflour (cornstarch)
  • ¼ pint (5/8 cup) fish stock
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 spring onions
  • 1 clove garlic
  1. Skin and bone the fish; chop the flesh finely
  2. Beat the egg and add to the fish with the cornflour (cornstarch)
  3. Beat well until smooth and evenly blended
  4. Put the fish stock, lemon juice and oil in a shallow pan, bring to the boil.
  5. Chop the spring onions (scallions) and crush the garlic, add to the stock, bring back to the boil.
  6. Shape the fish mixture into small balls, each the size of a pigeon’s egg.
Lower the fish balls, a few at time, into the stock, and cook gently for about 5 minutes. Lift out and drain.
