Salmon Meatballs

I used to make meatballs from chicken, pork, prawns, or the combination between the three, but nowadays I prefer the healthier choice. I decided to try making meatballs from salmon for the first time, hoping that everyone in the house would like it……………… which they did. I made the soup from prawn shells and head, and it tasted yummy. The good news is, I can store the meatballs and the prawn stock in the freezer to be used days later. Easy to make and also good for health………….no food preservatives, no MSG, less flour,and only made from fresh ingredients.
