Fish balls are also good for soups. you make a simple chicken broth, toss the fish balls into the broth, and throw in some leafy greens. healthy and simple! You can also get PRAWN balls, Meatballs, Mushroom Balls, Chicken Balls, Squid Balls, really where I come from, they are just everyday ingredient. :)

fish parts shaped into balls. There's a link in the comment above to learn how they're made.

I am confused. Are they balls as in nuts, cojones, berries??? Or some fish parts shaped into balls?

There is a 99 ranch market in Daly City, just south of SF. I bet they will have them. They have the best fresh seafood and also sell lots of live seafood.

There is an amazing asian market in echo park, on sunset...I can never remember the name of it, but they have a lot of great stuff and I've seen many different types of fish balls there. There is also Seafood City in Eagle Rock, a crazy asian supermarket located in a shopping mall.

Roly Poly Fish-Heads! Your title cracked me up, YumSugar! :-) I have seen fishballs been sold at IKEA--Look for FiskBollar. The Swedes are crazy about 'em. And there's nothing better than fish eyes (TeamSugar's granpa was right), or heads, or esp the meat in the fish cheeks! Lots of flavor there.

I would definitely try it. This post reminded me of my great grandfather when we would eat fish, he always want the fish eyes. He never ate them just let them roll around in his mouth! He loved them!

JDLNeil - I was wondering the same thing. I thought the actual fish ball was what we were making! I didn't know you could actually buy them! lol

it's delicious, but i grew up eating this kind of stuff! You can get fish balls at asian markets, and sometimes regular supermarkets near the tofu/posticker skins. Or you could try and make your own. if i find a place online I'll let you guys know! Sometimes it's also sold as a fish cake (longer slab format that you slice up) instead.

if you take a fish ball out to see a movie would you have to pay to get it in?
