I've been missing fish cakes since moving from Denmark. Over here fishcakes are all breaded, and just not "real fish cakes" to me :)
And as I have yet to come across a place here that sells minced fish, I decided to start making my own.
I get out my blender (all round kitchen machine). I add 1 onion cut in large chunks, and then I give it a blend to make it finely chopped. Then I add about 500 grams of mixed fish, I bought a fish pie mix from the store (salmon, haddock and smoked haddock). Then I blend again.
Now you have 2 choices, depending on how coarse you like your fishcakes. 1) If you like them coarse, you scrape the onion and fish out of your blender into a bowl and mix the rest with a spoon, or 2) If you prefer a fine texture, leave the onion and fish mix, and mix the rest in using the blender.
Now add 1 egg plus 1 egg white. 50 ml soy milk (or normal milk), 100 ml gluten free flour (or regular flour), salt, pepper and some dill. Mix until you have an even mass.
Heat some oil in a frying pan. Then scoop the mince up with a tablespoon and place the mix on the frying pan. Fry until golden brown.
I served it with a salad and new potatoes plus a home made onion sauce.
Onion sauce was made by frying slices of onion in a pan. Then adding a little vinegar, salt, pepper and a tiny bit of sugar. Then add some vegetable stock and bring to the boil. Thicken with cornflour dissolved in a little bit of soy milk.
