Deep Fried Talapia Fish Balls

Talapia was on sale at the market so I bought 3 pounds and decided to make fried fish balls. These chewy/crunchy fried fish balls are so delicious. Also, they are so easy to make, and they taste much better than store bought. Can you imagine all these only cost $10 bucks?

These chewy yummy treats can be eaten alone or with soup. Fish balls are mostly used as toppings to noodle-based or soup-based dishes and also served in soups.

Check out the fried fish when cut.

Here is a closer look.

You can add cilantro in the fish paste to give them more flavors. I add dill for this batch.

I used scallions for this batch.

The whole platter of fried fish balls. I am sure I will be using them in different dishes.


-Fish fillets
-baking powder
-fish sauce
-corn starch
-tapioca flour

Cut the fish fillets into chunks, marinate with salt, pepper, white part of green onion ; cayenne pepper. Then you can fry them or bake them into a 375F oven for about 15 minutes.
