Homemade salmon balls are so delicious that I wouldn’t dare buy them. Actually, I bought some from a organic market once and regretted it, so I went back to making my own.

    These look so yummy. I love samon patties, but have never made them into balls. I will have to try your recipe.

    Those look SO good. I’ve made salmon cakes before, but the glaze sounds yummy! Stopping by from SITS. I pinned too. 🙂

    We love salmon balls at our house. I always make extras and send them to school with the kids. I think they taste just as good cold as they do warm. I’ve never used any kind of glaze on mine, so I’m excited to try out this recipe!

    I never thought about salmon croquettes with orange or a pineapple glaze, but this sounds delicious.

      Neither me…I guess that’s why I tried it. It really was inspired by what I had in my fridge. Enjoy!

    Substitution for oyster sauce,please. Thanks

      Hi Sue Anna. Try using hosein or fish sauce instead. Fish sauce is not as thick but you should be fine with that substitution.
