Blog :: Ramblings of a health nut

Only minutes after announcing my slow day, I rummaged through our freezer, scavenging frozen leftovers to last me through this day.
Then I found a pack of frozen cod fillets and frozen peas. Somehow these managed to weasle their way into my kitchen, sneaking along some leftover grated cheese mix from yesterday.
I only turned my back for a split second, but before I knew it they had cracked an egg, ganged up with some cumin and curry powder and hopped into the oven.
Ah well, my freezer needs to be empty in 13 days anyway ;-)

Then my mom came over for tea and lunch and we ate those naughty fish balls (that'll teach 'em!) with a pizza square and endive salad on the side.

Naughty Fish Balls (makes 10-12 balls, serves 4)

  • 1 pack of frozen cod fillets (400 grams), defrosted
  • 200 grams of frozen peas, defrosted
  • grated cheese (*optional)
  • spices to taste: cumin powder, curry powder, freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 whole egg


  1. Place all ingredients, minus the grated cheese, in a bowl and use an immersion blender to create a smooth mixture.
  2. Add the grated cheese and stir the mixture with a spoon until the cheese is evenly mixed in.
  3. Using a spoon, scoop out about 1 tbsp of the mixture and use your hands to shape it into a ball.
  4. Place it on a baking tray lined with baking paper and continue to make balls until the mixture is finished.

    They're green ^^

  5. Bake the balls in the oven until the cod is ready (check the instructions on your package), and the cheese is molten (15-30 minutes).
  6. Let it cool down 5-10 minutes before serving.

Serve with a salad or other veggies and rice/pasta/millet/quinoa/whatever you want! Cold these also make for great fish burgers/sandwiches.
White fish is typically one of those proteins that goes well with any kind of carb. Just like egg whites.
