Quenelles

Originally small balls of minced or chopped fish, meat or poultry shaped into a small oval using two spoons and then poached. They were then used to decorate dishes such as clear soup or served as a main course with a sauce. Today, the term more widely refers to the shape, and quenelles can be made of anything from fish to thickened cream, mousse or sorbet.
