Fish meatballs with tomato sauce

Easy fish meatballs with tomato sauce. A fun way to enjoy fish.

Cod meatballs are one of my favourite ways to prepare fish for those that are not really into fish dishes. It is easy to make, it has lots of vegetables and goes amazing with the almond and tomato sauce.
