This recipe is similar to that for Fish Cakes but replaces the breadcrumb or yam binder with a cream sauce. The fish mixture is shaped into balls, coated in egg and breadcrumbs, and then fried.
Milder flavored and moister than the fish cakes, these fish balls make delicious appetizers served with hot pepper sauce, Shito, or ketchup.
At Flair catering, these are sometimes served in a Ghana-style tomato gravy, with or without curry powder: gently set the fish balls into the pot with the gravy just before serving and shake to coat them.
