The salmon balls are a tasty and original dish to enjoy the benefits of this fish rich in Omega-3.

The salmon meatballs are very simple to prepare, it takes just about half an hour in total.
You may have found yourself with a can of salmon in oil in the pantry and today I decided to turn it into polpette.
