Fish Burgers (Fiskekaker in Norwegian)
I was a little heavy-handed with the butter when I made these fiskekaker, but if you want to get rid of extra butter/oil place the patties on a few sheets of paper towels when they are done cooking to absorb excess oil.
It's great to have a stash of fish patties in the freezer for a quick sandwich for lunch or an easy meal for dinner.
Here is a recipe for making Fish Patties or maybe you call them Fish Cakes.Ingredients:
1 lb fresh or frozen haddock, cod,
1 cup milk (approximately)
2 tablespoons corn starch
1 tablespoon flour
1 teaspoon chopped fresh chives
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
Extra virgin olive oil or organic extra
virgin coconut oil for frying.
Place cut-up fillets in a food processor. Add flour, salt, spices and an egg. Add milk gradually. Mix 1 minute.
Use a large spoon to form patties and place in a pan lightly coated with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Cook both sides until light golden brown.
Another method is to apply a light coating of E.V.O.O. on a baking sheet and pop them in the oven at 350°F. for 10 minutes. Turn patties and finish baking until done.
If you make a double batch; freeze individual patties to have lean seafood burgers on hand for quick meals.
Serve with heaps of steamed vegetable, sauteed onions, mushroom and garlic and why not, a spinach salad.
Enjoy deliciously skinny fish patties and stay lean and healthy.
