Fish cake and fish balls noodle soup

I like to order this type of fish cake noodles soup in one of the restaurant nearby my area, they serve very fresh fish balls and fish cake. Yesterday i just imitated this noodle soup at home since I bought a fresh Spanish mackerel from the market.

Fish cake and fish balls noodle soup
(printable recipe)

To make fish paste-
600g fish meat, Spanish mackerel, (ikan tenggiri)
60ml ice water
2tsp salt or to taste
1/2tsp white pepper powder
1/2tsp sesame oil
1tsp sugar
2tsp tapioca flour

1. Mix all ingredients except fish meat in a small bowl, mix well.
2. Place fish meat in another large mixing bowl.
3. Gradually add in liquid mixture into fish meat, stir the fish meat till all combine together.
4. Slap the fish meat against the sides of the mixing bowl several times or until mixture is well combined and sticky, takes about 5mins.

To make fish ball – Wet your hand in a small bowl of salt water, scoop up the flesh and shape like a golf ball size and cook in the broth or a pot of boiling water. The fish ball is thoroughly cooked when it floats on the water surface.

To make fish cake- Wet your hand in a small bowl of salt water, scoop up the flesh and shape long round size. Steam over hot water for 10mins and pan fry in hot oil till golden brown.

To make the bowl – Bring broth to boil (make broth by boiled dried anchovies, salted veggie and water), fill bowl with noodles, fish balls, fish cake slices and small piece of seaweed. Ladle the hot broth into bowl. Garnish with fresh veggie and garlic oil. Serve hot.

**Do try out this healthy and fresh noodle soup !!

My mom used to make that when we were young.... I wanted to try that so mush but can't as my hands can't stand cold water due to joint pain. That's the price that i have to pay for having a proper confinement.

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

dear all, Thanks for stopping by, do try out this healthy meal at home, you will love it.

Yee er, sorry to know that you have joint pain, maybe you can try to use blender to blend the fish paste, my sister-in-law is using this method but I have never try myself.

Lily, is ok, take good care of your mom, hopefully we can meet each other in some other time. Take care dear.

Yee Er said...

Tkz for the tips, Sonia. My hubby will be happy to know i can try this using blender.

Cheah said...

Wow, these home made fish cake is delicious. Never tried making this before but I did watch how my mum did it and use it to stuff the tofu, chillies, etc.

Clare @ Mrs Multitasker said...
