Maria called these albóndigas, which usually means a type of meatball, but in fact they are more like fried fish quenelles. She used cooked fish left over from another meal and I would ask for them again and again. You need to start the preparation well ahead as it is done in stages, but it’s well worth the effort and you can do most of it the day before if that is more convenient.
