Fishball is one popular finger food in the Philippines. I misses them so may times in the US. Famous location of fishball vendors are in schools, we have the so called street food corner at the downtown of my hometown and you get to roam around with all those delicious and so inviting Filipino food you could ever ask! During summer time also reminds me and my sister sells fishball in my uncle's front yard house. Cost it one PH peso way back, lol. Neighbors of all ages buys us everyday until summer time is over. Sure those old times was fun and we have to earned extra money you know. So this is our family's recipe, my mom originally made this recipe and she passes it to us. I'm just glad i know the best fishball recipe to cook along with the sweet and sour homemade sauce that mom make as well.
Here is the simple yet taste like home pinoy fishball you could try:
1 cup chop fresh fish or left over fried tuna or galungung (you can buy Tuna fillet at publix)
1/2 cup flour
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp paprika powder
1/4 cup grind carrots
chop green onions
Mix altogether then make bola bola shapes. Fry it in the skillet until brown. Repeatedly.
For the sauce:
2 cups water, a tbsp datu puti, a tsp soysauce, a tbsp ketchup, a tbsp asian chilli sauce, a tbsp brown sugar and a tbsp white sugar, 1 tbsp cornstarch, chop onion, chop 3 cloves garlic, 1tsp oil for gisa sa panakut :). That's all simmer until sauce thicken. (depends on how u want the sweet and sour taste)
