Step 1 – Pre-heat oven to 200°C and bake salmon fillets until cooked, then flake with a fork.

Step 2 – In a small bowl mix together all the ingredients for the dipping sauce, cover and refrigerate until serving.

Step 3 – In a large bowl mix together all other ingredients thoroughly until mixture comes together.

Step 4 – Line a baking tray and spray with oil. Shape mixture into 10 evenly sized balls and place onto tray. Press gently to flatten, Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden. Amazeballs can be eaten hot or cold.

• For convenience, you can substitute the fresh salmon fillets for a 425g can of red salmon, well drained.
• If you want crispier fritters you can pan fry them instead of baking.
• Amazeballs can be frozen for up to 2 months.
