She is currently working with Nee Hao Magazine to bring you a series of exclusive mouth watering recipes for you to try cooking at home.

Fish balls are popular snacks all over China, Hong Kong as well as Malaysia and Singapore. There are two types known as the yellow street food version and the white restaurant version. I have decided to make the white version for the healthier, cleaner taste with no additives.

White fish ball restaurant version- are made from better quality fish. The fish balls are larger in size and its main ingredients are white fish with no additives, boiled to retain its natural clean flavour. Served at Chinese cafes, restaurants and eaten as a compliment with noodles, added to soups, mixed with vegetables or for hotpots.

fish ballsChoice of fish- You can use any type of white fish. I prefer to use either cod or haddock.

Note:- A good white fish ball should be light, fluffy, and have an elastic springy texture. You do not want soft and mushy balls, but one with a spring to it! To achieve this texture you must lift the blended fish paste whilst smacking it down on the work surface like you are really angry! Repeat this 30-40 times. This should make the fish balls springy and light in texture.

You will need to firm up the smacked down fish paste in the fridge for an hour before rolling into balls.
