Salmon meatballs

Salmon meatballs, simple and tasty, can be served both as a main course and as an aperitif. These salmon meatballs are fried, but they can also be baked in the oven, remain soft inside and are wrapped in a crispy breading made with breadcrumbs and almond flour. I accompanied them with slices of fried avocado with the same breading as the meatballs and a yogurt and mustard sauce.
