Fish is a really nutritious and healthy food. This dinner recipe is quick and easy, and can be prepared beforehand. This is a tasty way to include fish in your diet.
Remember: once you add a source of carbohydrates (potatoes, rice, pasta, grains or cereals) you will increase the total carbohydrate in your meal.
Tip: Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are important for maintaining overall eye health. It also contains folic acid, vitamin D, vitamin B6, vitamin B12 and vitamin A.
150g potatoes, diced
200g tinned salmon (leftover cooked salmon would work well here too)
Salt and pepper
1 bunch parsley, washed and chopped
2 tablespoons fresh grated parmesan
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon olive oil
Peel the potatoes and from a cold water start, boil until they are tender, drain and mash.
Mix the salmon, potato, a little salt and pepper and half the parsley until combined. Mould into round cakes (4 large or 8 small).
Mix the breadcrumbs, parmesan and the remainder of the parsley together.
Roll the fish cakes in the flour and dip them in beaten egg before rolling in the breadcrumb mix.
Heat the olive oil in a frying pan, and over a medium heat gently fry the fish cakes for 4 minutes each side or until golden brown*.
Remove from the pan and rest on absorbent paper before serving.
*Alternatively, the fish cakes can be grilled for 5 mins each side until golden brown.
