Fish Cakes

Prep time: 25 minutes

Cook time: 30 minutes

Serves: 4 People

Inspired by our favourite dish from @shelter.lennox, we used our new @kitchenaidausnz 13 Cup Food Processor to serve up these DELICIOUS kingfish cakes. We love how easy it was to make the breadcrumbs and to chop and mix all the ingredients! Serve up just with the salad for lunch and dinner or add an egg for the tastiest breakfast dish!

    Now pour bottle grapeseed oil into a pan and bring to approx. 200 C then pop the fish cakes into the pan and cook for a couple of minutes/until golden brown.

  • 14)

    Once cooked, place the fish cakes onto paper towels and give them a little sprinkle of salt.

  • 15)

    For the salad, separate the leaves from 2 mini cos lettuce, then pop them into a salad bowl.

  • 16)

    Next whack in 2 tablespoons of capers (together with a bit of the brine) followed by a small handful of roughly chopped dill, finely chopped parsley, the juice of 1 lemon as well as bite-sized chunks of 2 avocados.

  • 17)

    Now hit the salad with a little drizzle of olive oil then gently bring the salad all together using two spoons.
