Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Servings: 4


  • 1 1/2 pounds cod, skin removed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt (divided)
  • 2 green onions, finely minced
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken stock
  • 2 3/4 cups thinly sliced ​​celery
  • 2 3/4 cups thinly sliced ​​kohlrabi
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, cut coarsely
  • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
  • 1 cup sour cream

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Cut the fish into small pieces and place in a food processor with 3/4 teaspoon of salt. Chop into a coarse paste. Alternatively, you can purchase ground cod. Add the eggs and green onions to the fish and mix thoroughly. Shape the ground fish into 12 balls, about 2 to 3 ounces each.
  2. Bring the chicken stock to a boil and add 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Add the celery and kohlrabi, bring back to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove the vegetables from the broth with a slotted spoon and keep warm.
  3. Carefully add the fish balls into the simmering broth and cook very gently for 8 to 10 minutes.
  4. Combine the horseradish with the sour cream. Set aside.
  5. When ready to eat, place a quarter of the vegetable into a bowl and top with 1 cup of broth. Repeat for remaining servings. Top with cooked fish balls (2 per bowl) and garnish each bowl with about 2 tablespoons of chopped parsley. Serve with horseradish sauce.
