These gluten free and low carb Salmon and Sweet Potato Fish Cakes are as easy as can be. I used frozen, lightly smoked salmon fillets and combined it with sweet potato, chopped chives and mint, grated onion, coated in Parmesan and coconut – and finally shallow fried until golden, crispy deliciousness.

I also like a good tartar sauce with my fishy meal – however I opted for a minty mayonnaise instead. Perfect fresh flavors on a plate.

I just love crunchy things, don’t you? You should seriously have a look at these Coconut and Parmesan Crumbed Mushrooms  and this amazing Pork Schnitzel with Mushroom Gravy  where I’ve incorporated my crumbing technique using grated Parmesan and desiccated coconut.
