There are many versions of fried or baked potato balls with a variety of fillings. Potato balls stuffed with fish make perfect for snacks, appetizers, or party trays.
Fish is well known for its health properties, especially due to its high content in healthy fats and omega-3 fatty acids. According to Dr. Joseph Mercola, a leading physician and health expert, “Eating healthy fats such as animal-based omega-3 fats or the essential fatty acid gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) tends to reduce inflammation.”
New research from Europe now shows that eating fish helps reduce depression.
