Coriander and Sun Dried Tomato Fish Cakes…


Coriander and Sun Dried Tomato Fish Cakes...

As you know, I have been experimenting with fish cakes recently, and last Friday I went for a mix of fresh salmon and haddock. The recipe is the same as the one from May 5th but there I used salmon and cod – the haddock gave the cakes a tad more flavour to my taste – and this time I also added a small bunch of finely chopped coriander leaves and 6 finely sliced sun dried tomatoes to the fish mix.

The result was even better than the one on the 5th! I also made 2 smaller ones each, rather than last time one large fishcake each. I again served them on the bed of salsa – see recipe from the 5th again,  and Jersey Royal new potatoes. Plus a salad of peppery leaves and grated beetroot.

I am getting into fishcakes!

Pan Fried Salmon Steaks with lime and coriander mayo


Pan Fried Salmon Steaks with lime and coriander mayo

Last night’s supper was easy and phenomenally tasty. Salmon, lime and coriander were made for each other. My photo does not do it justice and the plate I was going to use had been whisked away before I could snap it – so this one had to do!

I seasoned the salmon steaks with salt and pepper, heated 2 tbsps of olive oil and 15 gms of butter in a frying pan over a medium heat. I cooked them on the skin side for 5/6 minutes and 4 then on the flesh side. You could use skinned salmon steaks – in which case just do 4 minutes per side.

For the sauce mix 110 gm mayo with a small handful of chopped coriander, the zest of a lime and juice of half a lime. Mix well.

I served it simply with steamed broccoli spears and pearl maris piper potatoes in butter.

The flavours zinged off the plate!
