Fishcakes can be a little hit and miss. Sometimes they can be dry due to over cooking or too starchy sue to having too much potato. Not these ones! 😋 The combo of a whole succulent Salmon fillet with Sweet Potato keeps these fishcakes juicy and full of favour. Add a little potato flour to suck up some of the moisture, pan fry and if needed crisp up in the oven. So so good, and yet another take and new taste experience with these core ingredients in the IIFYM+ Thrive easting approach.
Serve with some buttery sautéed Button Mushrooms and a rocket salad drizzled with balsamic vinegar and honey dressing. To bring some extra dimension, serve with a dollop of lemon mayonnaise, a perfect compliment to this salmon fishcake. Enjoy! 😍
