Lena has shared one of her absolute fav recipes!!
SALMON AND BASIL FISH CAKES
Serves 4 / Prep time: 25-min / Cook time: 10-min
3 medium fingerling potatoes (or small white potatoes)
1 fillet wild salmon (about 12 oz)
1 large egg
1/2 cup loose packed fresh basil
2 tbsp all-purpose flour (Lena uses gluten free)
1 tsp salt
Avocado oil to fry with
Start by boiling the potatoes until fork tender. Once the potatoes are done boiling, drain the water and mash them in a large mixing bowl (no need to take skins off as they give the cakes a more rustic look and you get the nutrients from the skin).
Cut the skin away from the salmon and discard. Chop salmon into bite sized chunks and mash the meat into the potato. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
Heat avocado oil in large skillet on medium heat. Form 4 patties out of your potato/salmon mix and place in pan.
Cook each side for about 5 minutes or until golden brown being careful not to burn it (they will cook fast). Flip over and cook other side for another 5 minutes and voila, restaurant worthy fish cakes!
