SALMON MEATBALLS



I usually make these fish cakes for my children, but we love them as well!!

Ingredients for 8/10 meatballs:

1 big salmon fillet (450g) or mixed fish such as cod or sea bass or haddock
450g  potatoes
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
1 free-range egg
salt and pepper
Vegetable oil (for frying)
Breadcrumbs (to coat)

Cook the fish in a bain-marie while the potatoes are boiling ; when cooked , take away the fish and place it on a dish. When it is cool enough to handle, take off the skin, remove any bones and flake the fish into small chunks. Peel the potatoes and mash them using a fork.

Mix the fish, mashed potato, parsley, Parmesan and egg together until well combined. If too wet, add some breadcrumbs. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Shape the mixture into 8-12 patties, depending on how large you want them to be; heat some vegetable oil in a frying pan and heat the fish cakes until golden brown on each side and heated right through.

Serve with a simple lettuce and tomato salad.
