Swedish Fishballs

A picture named M2

Horse meat in IKEA meatballs is world news, but really, who is surprised, you get what you pay for. In my mind the IKEA version of meatballs is bland and the sauce is just awful, next time you visit their restaurant try the gravlax instead. Fishy business here in the US has been revealed by Oceana that has DNA-tested fish and found out that more than 90% of canned tuna is something else. Oceana recommends suspicious shoppers to buy salmon as this fish is more difficult to mislabel. Today I made fishballs from lax served with a Swedish style roe sauce and straight forward haricot verts from Florida. Very clean food with bright flavors.

1 lb/500 g fresh or frozen salmon
1 egg
2 tablespoons fresh, chopped dill
salt and black pepper

Chop the salmon and put together in mixer with rest of the ingredients, mix and form balls, sear in plenty of butter in medium heat pan.

Roe sauce

2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon sour cream
1 tablespoon fish roe from herring or lumpfish or if you want to splurge use salmon roe.
Juice from 1/2 lemon
salt and pepper

Mix and salt and pepper to flavor.

Serve fishballs and sauce with haricot verts.
