    Salmon Chickpea Fishballs

    I was in mood to cook something with fish, soon after i made the arancini so I was in mood for balls.

    I found on my shelves a can of chickpeas and no bread, so i decided to use the chickpeas as the binding agent for my fishballs.

    Being springtime I used green garlic and green onions, you could use the regular non-spring versions as well but these greens give a fresh flavor and a nice color and texture.

    The final outcome was not only very pretty but also so yummy!

    This is my special new recipe, pretty quick and straightforward:

    Ingredients (2 servings):

    • 1 can chickpeas

      1 can chickpeas
    • 300-400 g boneless salmon fillets

    • 1 green onion
    • 100 g breadcrumbs
    • 100 g shredded mozzarella cheese
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • frying oil enough to fill the skillet

    Preparation method:

    1. With a fork, mash the canned chickpeas, discard the liquid from the can.
    2. Dice the salmon then chop them with a kitchen knife until the pieces are quite small, but not a paste

    7. Heat the frying oil in a deep enough skillet, and fry the fishballs over medium high heat until they get a nice golden color. Don’t overcrowd the pan, not to burn them.
