Time & time again I hear about how it’s really hard to get kids to eat their veggies. Ok…..so I don’t have kids to know the real struggle….but there must be a limit to where you can’t just feed them chips or biscuits everyday?! It’s not good for their growing little minds & bodies….
These look like a great alternative for your kids – big or small! Crunchy on the outside & tasty treats served with a lemon/lime & mint yoghurt dressing along side salad….or even homemade sweet potato fries if you must?!
185g can of pink salmon, well drained (or tuna if you prefer)
2Tbsp finely chooped chives
1 zucchini, grated
1 egg, lightly whisked
1/4C plain wholemeal flour (or coconut flour for coating)
2Tbsp oil for frying
lemon/lime wedges to serve
Method (makes 10):
Combine all ingredients except flour into large bowl. Use your finger to crush up the salmon bones (great source calcium, magnesium, potassium).
Squeeze the mixture into golf-ball sized amounts Toss in the flour to coat evenly.
Heat the oil in frying pan over medium heat. Cook the balls in the oil for 5-6mins (turning over in oil) until golden.
Remove the balls & drain on paper towel.
Serve alongside a salad with lemon wedges & an easy yoghurt dressing.
