Takes 55 minutes
Makes 6 servings
400 grams squid
250 grams white fish fillets
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1/2 inch fresh ginger, peeled
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons sesame oil
Place squid, fish fillets, flour, cornstarch, garlic, ginger, pepper, salt, sugar, and sesame oil into the bowl of a food processor. Grind the ingredients until it reaches a paste consistency.
Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Form the mixture into balls using two spoons.
Bring a pot of water to a boil. Drop each ball into the hot water, and cook until balls are firm. Drain, set aside, and chill in the refrigerator again.
Once cooled down, store in the freezer or until needed.
When ready to cook, fry the balls on medium heat until golden brown. Serve while hot with sweet chili sauce.
