Fried Fish Balls Recipe

Step 1

Combine first 11 ingredients in a large mixing bowl; mix well. Shape into 1-inch balls. (At this point, balls may be frozen: when ready to use, partially thaw and fry as directed below.)

Step 2

Fry croquettes in 2-inch deep hot oil (370) until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately with cocktail sauce. Yield: 5-1/2 dozen.

Note: This makes a delicious appetizer and may be made with any cooked fish.
