Sweet & Sour Fish Balls

Sweet and sour fish balls are very easy to make; I prepared the sweet and sour sauce in less than 20 minutes, though preparation and cooking  fish ball would take about 30 minutes. It calls for very simple and easy-to-get ingredients. What I love most about the dish is that it can be a main entree that goes very well with steamed rice, but fish balls itself  can also be converted to a little snack–one that you can eat pretty much anytime of the day when you’re hungry.
