PILCHARD MEATBALLS IN SALAD CUPS

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 x 400 g can Lucky Star Pilchards in Sweet Chilli Sauce
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup (125 ml) breadcrumbs
  • 1 small onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 stalks celery with leaves, finely sliced (chop leaves separately)
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Flour, for dusting
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges
  • 18 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 12 whole lettuce leaves (cos or romaine), washed

METHOD

  1. Drain the pilchards and reserve the sauce for later. Mash the pilchards in a bowl.

Heat the oil in a non-stick pan and shallow fry the balls until browned on the outside and heated through. Remove from heat and drain on paper towel. Squeeze half the lemon wedges over the pilchard meatballs.
  3. Toss the chopped celery and cherry tomato halves in the reserved sweet chilli sauce.
