Makes 30 one-inch balls
Matzoh meal, made from unleavened matzoh crackers, is used in this recipe to help hold the arugula mixture together, much the same way that breadcrumbs are often used as a binder in meatloaf.
Ingredients: 
  • 3/4 pound arugula
  • 3/4 pound boneless, skinless, salmon fillet, very finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 green onion, top only, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup finely grated provolone cheese
  • 1/2 cup matzoh meal

Method: 
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Remove stems from arugula. Steam leaves just until tender. Run cold water over leaves to cool. Place leaves between paper towels and gently press out excess water; chop fine.

Combine salmon, salt, pepper, zest and ricotta in a medium bowl. Stir in arugula, provolone, matzoh and onion by hand. Roll mixture into 30 (one-inch) balls. Place on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 7 minutes.
