Ingredients you will need

 

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup white rice
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  •  1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 (14-ounce) can salmon, drained

 

How to prepare it

 

  • In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic; cook and stir until tender, about 5-6 minutes. Add the rice and stir for 1 minute. Add the chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low, cover pan, and cook for 15-20 minutes or until the rice is just tender. Remove from the heat and cool for 15 minutes.
  • Place the rice mixture in a large bowl. Add the egg, thyme, salt, pepper, and the lemon juice and mix well.
  • Stir in the salmon until combined. Cover and chill for 1-2 hours so the mixture firms up.
  • Form the mixture into 1-1/2" meatballs. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the meatballs and sauté, turning carefully only once, until they are well browned, about 5 to 6 minutes. Serve immediately, or add a sweet and sour or an Alfredo sauce to the meatballs to serve over pasta or rice.
