Quick fish cakes

If you’re not pedantic about deviating from methodology and recipes and love speedy good food, this might be up your street! Quick Lime, Tuna and Salmon fish cakes.

Ditch the egg, flour and bread crumbs.
The airfryer works wonders in making these firstly, they are evenly cooked secondly, they get crispy. if you don’t have one then no worries, a grill will also do for these perfect little cakes!

I didn’t have any baps but these make amazing burgers…as they are flourished with spicy rocket leaves and tartare sauce.

Today I went with potato waffles and mushy peas for a quick lunch fix for hubby and me.

So whats in them?

Leftover mash, tuna, few slices of smoked salmon and usual fridge remnants go in!
The ace in the hand comes from the aromatic kafir lime leaves that sing in every bite!

Fish cakes really don’t need all that palava with egg dipping, crumb coating, unless you’re entertaining in my book. I don’t bother as the taste is there and they get a lovely crispy coating from the oil spray while cooking as you will see!

Give em a go!
