Can You Store Salmon Balls?
Our refrigerators are mostly packed with pre-cooked and ready-to-eat canned foods or junk. However, they may only be filling you up with food, but not your body with health.
Therefore, whenever you get time to cook healthy, it is always smart to store some extra. Although most foods cannot be stored, the Salmon Balls can stay good in the fridge in an airtight box, unfried. You prepare the balls and store them in the fridge for 5-7 days while for months in the freezer.
Just toss them in a skillet full of hot oil after bringing them to room temperature, and fry to your heart’s content!
