Moroccan Fish Balls

1 lb Fish fillets
1 Onion; quartered
1 sm Bunch fresh parsley; coarsely chopped, stems discarded
1 sl White bread; crusts removed
1/4 c Water
1/2 ts Salt
1/2 ts Cayenne pepper
1/2 ts Dried marjoram
1 Head celery; coarsely chopped, leaves discarded
1 tb Oil
2 c Broth; or water


In a food processor or blender, puree the fish with the onion and parsley. Soak the bread in water, then squeeze it dry. Add bread to the fish mixture and season with salt, cayenne pepper and marjoram. Wet your hands and form 1/2- inch balls with the fish mixture.

Pour the oil and broth into a deep pot set over high heat. Bring to a boil and add fish balls. Reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, with the water barely moving for 10 minutes. Add the celery, cover the pot, and simmer for an additional 20 minutes. This dish is a liquid stew or chunky soup. Serve it hot with rice as an entree.
