Odesa is one of the few cities in the world where an original cuisine has been formed. Most dishes are a symbiosis of Ukrainian, Jewish, Greek, Bulgarian and other cuisines. At the same time, the residents of Odesa are big connoisseurs of fish. And not only sea fish, but also river ones. Especially if the fish is caught in the Danube. So it is not surprising that sprat rissoles are one of the favorite dishes in this region.
And although in Ukraine it is widely said: "Fish is not bread, you will not be full of it", this proverb definitely does not apply to delicious and hearty sprat (or monkey goby) rissoles! This dish is both useful and nutritious, and easy to prepare. Not to mention the fact that it is delicious! After all, can people cook badly in Odesa?
