Other than Asian cuisines, what other cuisines have "fish balls"
I have a dinner at Asta (Boston) riding on this.
Any thoughts or insights?
Bolas de Bacalao Frito (Spanish tapas)
There should be a variation of this in Portugal...pretty easy to find in Macau as well at their local Portugese and Macanese restaurants (the ones that don't just serve pork chop buns).
And from Wikipedia:
Fishballs in parts of Europe:
Fiskbullar in Sweden and fiskeboller in Norway are usually bought in cans. In Sweden, they are normally served with mashed potatoes or rice, boiled green peas and dill, caviar or seafood sauces. In Norway, they are commonly served with potatoes and white sauce made with the stock from the can, sometimes with added curry.
In less than 10 minutes time it looks like I'm getting a free dinner.
As always, my Chowhound buddies come through!
