Sturgeon fish balls for 4 people
150 gr pumpkin already cleanes
extra-virgin olive oil
a pinch of nutmeg
salt and pepper q.b.
Let’s start by making a Zucchini Cream. Take the pumpkin already clean and cut into cubes; finely chopped 1/4 onion and place in a large saucepan, along with 2 tablespoons of oil e.v.o.
Then turn the heat on a moderate flame and as soon as the onion turns golden, add the pumpkin into cubes and sauté for a few minutes. At this point wet the pumpkin with a ladle of vegetable stock (or hot water), cover with a lid and cook over low heat for about 10 minutes.
When cooked, add salt and pepper and add a pinch of nutmeg. Leave the pumpkin to cool and then blend it using the minipimer, until obtaining a smooth and lump-free cream. Keep the pumpkin cream aside and proceed with the cooking of the fish balls.
Slice the onion finely and put it in a large pan with 2 tablespoons of oil e.v.o. Fry the onion, then add the still frozen fish balls. Mix everything well, cover with a lid and cook for about 12-13 minutes.
When the meatballs are cooked, add salt and now you are ready for the dish. On a flat plate, distribute a generous amount of pumpkin cream and place the fish balls with the sautéed onion on top. Serve on the table all very hot and steaming.
