I promise I'm not doing it on purpose and am determined to cook up some chook just as soon as I tell you just how fabulous these tuna & potato balls are.
On the surface, these are just potato and tuna mixed up together so what's so special about that?
Let me just tell you - it's the creaminess of the ricotta, the refreshing scent of lemon zest and the wonderful flavor of marjoram.
Have your attention now don't I?
This one's a classic from the Roman fry shops, only I can enjoy them in my urban kitchen in the US of A. You won't be able to get enough of them.
And the best thing is to make a large batch, serve them as-is with some lemon zest or toss them with some garlic and pasta for a whole meal or with marinara for yet another great way to jazz up left over fritters.
Also, you know I'd tell you if you needed to make fresh breadcrumbs. Nope, the boxed version works just fine. Because it really isn't really about the breading at all.
The magic is all inside.
