I used solid albacore (low sodium) tuna for these lovely balls. Fast and easy to put together. Made and refrigerated them for two hours before baking. I made the crumbs from the cereal and left them rustic. DH said this is a keeper! Served them over steamed carrots and cauliflower. Thank you Pia for sharing. Made for Billboard Recipe Tag. UPDATE: 1/18/15 Made these with leftover sockeye salmon and it was really awesome too! To the sauce I added chipotle mango seasoning and some grated aged cheddar. We love this recipe!!
