My first plan was making kushikatsu, but then in the middle of chopping the fish, there was a little tiny thinking accross into my mind that 'hey, why don't I make something different?'

And........voila.....I introduced my new recipe that I named Fish Katsu Ball. Why did it name so? Fish....because the main ingredient is fish. Katsu.....because it is deep fried and covered with bread crumbs just like chicken katsu except the ball shape. Ball.....because the shape is round like a ball :).

Do you wanna try?....

Fish Katsu Ball

1 lb fish fillet (I used pangasius fish), grind
3 cloves garlic, chopped
2 stalks spring onion, thinly sliced
5 tbsps all-purpose flour
2 egg whites
2 tbsps fish sauce
Salt and pepper, to taste
150 gr bread crumbs (I used Panko bread crumbs)
150 ml oil

Mix ground fish, garlic, flour, spring onion, and egg whites, season with fish sauce, salt and pepper, to taste. (the fish batter is little bit wet, so you need 2 spoons to shape it into ball form)
In a frying pan, heat the oil over medium high heat. Once the oil is hot, reduce the heat into medium heat.
Using 2 tablespoons, form the fish batter into small ball form. Dump the fish ball into the bread crumbs, make sure the balls fully covered by the bread crumbs.
Fry it until cooked and golden brown. Serve it with chilli sauce.


  1. I think this looks really good! Reminds me of Hoka Hoka Bento, even though they don't have Fish Katsu ;).

  2. Thank you :). I loved Hoka Hoka Bento! Eating fish katsu ball just brought me back to those old days at my hometown :)
