Kimmy, I love meatball soup. In fact was thinking of making some this weekend. I'll try and get the seaweed. Hope can find at the supermarket.

Hi Kimmy - what meat do you used? can use fish paste? Raw meatballs can freeze for use in different batch?

Hi Phong Hong, this is a healthy clear soup. You can add glass noodles to make it complete for a One Dish Meal.

Hi Lynn, I think you can also chicken meat with prawn or fish paste. Should be good if you don't take pork. Sometimes, I make such meatballs too. They are nice, aromatic and sweet. Yes you can freeze them.
