Easy Fish Balls Soup

Fish balls soup was one of the easiest and simplest dish I've prepared. You can absolutely make this one whenever you're hungry and didn't have much time to cook as long as you have some fish balls in your fridge. You may add in noodles in your soup if you prefer, or you can have it with dipping sauce.

300g assorted fish cakes and fish balls - blanched
