Fish Cakes with Winter Slaw

Dinner

This is a super healthy fish cake recipe, with some seasonal winter slaw.

Ingredients

Fish cake:

  • 300g mixture of firm fish such as haddock or salmon, skinned, deboned and roughly chopped

  • 1 free range egg, beaten

  • 1/2 lime, juice and zest

  • 1 crushed garlic clove

  • 2 tsp tamari soy sauce

  • 3 tbsp chopped coriander 

  • 3 tbsp breadcrumbs

  • Oil for frying - coconut, rapeseed, avocado, olive

  • 4 good quality burger buns

Slaw:

  • 2 Carrots, grated

  • 200-300 celeriac, grated (quality should be equal to your carrots) or shredded white cabbage 

  • 2 1/2 tbsp plain yogurt or good quality mayonnaise

  • Dash of cider vinegar or juice of 1/2 small lemon

  • 1 large teaspoon dijon mustard

  • Salt and pepper to season

Method

  • Put the chopped fish in a food processor and whizz to a paste 

  • Add the fish to a large bowl along with the rest of the burger ingredients and mix well

  • Form the mixture into four patties

  • Pop them onto a plate and transfer them to the freezer for 10 minutes to firm up

  • Mix together the wet ingredients for the slaw, taste and season as necessary

  • Pour enough of the dressing over the grated vegetable so they are evenly coated, mix well

  • Heat a large pan with the oil to a medium-high heat and fry the patties for two to four minutes on each side until golden on the outside and cooked through

  • Toast the buns (if needed), then pop on a burger, a little slaw and serve

 

Tip:

  • Serve with some good quality home made chips, regular or sweet potato. Or if you have some time, homemade are always the best!

  • Omit the slaw and just add some salad and lemony mayonnaise. Take a good quality mayonnaise and squeeze a little fresh lemon juice in, season. You can also use plain, greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise

  • Add some seeds to the burgers such as sesame

  • Add some seeds to the slaw, chose your favourites!
