This Sweet and Spicy Fish Balls is inspired from that street food but I added some twist and served it with additional ingredients like pineapples and capsicum.


  • 500g assorted fish cakes and fish balls
  • 1 small can pineapple chunks in syrup, reserve liquid
  • 1 red capsicum, sliced
  • 1/2 cup sweet chilli sauce
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • salt
  • oil


  1. In a pan add oil then sauté garlic, ginger and onion.
  2. Add fishballs and stir fry for 3 minutes.
  3. Pour in the sweet chilli sauce, 1/2 cup water, reserved liquid from pineapple chunks and pineapples. Bring to a boil then simmer for 5 minutes in low heat.
  4. Add the cayenne and capsicum then simmer for 5 more minutes.
  5. Mix the cornstarch with 1/4 cup water and pour into the pan, simmer until sauce becomes thick.
  6. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper then serve.
