Fresh Salmon and Tuna Fish Cakes

fresh salmon and tuna fish cakes

Fish cakes are so incredibly quick and simple. Yes, creating the mixture can look like a lot of effort but it really isn’t, I promise. Double the quantities to make a big batch and freeze too if you fancy it.

Makes 4 large fish cakes, 6 small

  • 4 fillets of fresh tuna and fresh salmon, filleted, pin boned and chopped
  • 1/2 red onion

  • 1/2 red chilli, chopped
  • a few springs of fresh coriander, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp dried oregano

First shallow fry the salmon and tuna in a large pan and set to one side. In a medium sized bowl add the other ingredients and stir. Add the fish and stir in well. Season. If the mixture looks dry, add a dash of milk as it should be wet.

Use your hands to create cakes from the mixture.

Sometimes, when making these fish cakes, I dip the balls in to a bowl with an egg yolk in before dipping into some flour before frying but I didn’t on this occasion and they still turned out crispy.

Let me know if you try them.
