Salmon & Spinach Fish Balls

Updated: May 9

Perfect for little ones and adults alike... and ideal for batch cooking as they can be frozen.

These fish balls were a bit of an experiment. But they went down a treat, with the hubby sneaking a few in when he thought I wasn't looking! I've used fresh salmon fillets but canned salmon would work just as well. Both are high in healthy omega-3 fats which we want to be eating plenty of.

You can also make this gluten and dairy free by switching the flour, breadcrumbs and milk to free from alternatives.
