Hake meatballs and prawns in sauce

Recipe of hake meatballs and prawns in sauce.

Whenever we talk about meatballs, meatballs come to mind, today I want to leave you with this recipe for fish and seafood meatballs that the whole family will like.

I have prepared the meatballs with hake and prawns, but they can be prepared with other types of fish (cod, monkfish, bonito … etc).

Both hake and shrimp were frozen, they are cheaper. I have previously thawed them. Hake fillets are skinless and boneless. And the prawns are small of what they call rice cookers.

With the heads and shells of the prawns I have prepared a fish stock or fumet, which will serve as a broth for the sauce.

As always, I hope you like it.
