Whether you’re looking for an easy midweek meal or just a wholesome lunch for the kiddos during school holidays – you’ve come to the right place.
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.
I’m not even sorry that I’m using this combo EVERY SINGLE TIME. But seriously, for a crunchy low carb crumb – that is the way to go.
