Gluten-Free Salmon Fish Cakes

Kids love fish sticks – or, at least, the kids I know do! They’re crunchy, tasty, and easy to cook, but they are not exactly healthy! For starters, goodness only knows what part of a fish they are made of, and I’m sure no type of bread I’ve ever seen makes such yellow breadcrumbs! And I’ll also bet those breadcrumbs aren’t made gluten-free bread either.

If your kid is happy to eat fish sticks, they’ll be even happier eating these kid-friendly salmon fish cakes. I’ve found this delicious recipe here. My friends swear by this recipe and say that their children can’t get enough of them. Serve with a little salad for a meal that’s so healthy your kids will grow right before your eyes!


  • 2 large baking potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • The grated zest and juice ½ lemon
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 5 ounces smoked salmon
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons gluten-free flour (available at mixed with 1 tsp coarsely ground pepper
  • 1-2 tablespoons of oil, for frying


Cook the potatoes in a microwave set on high for ten minutes until tender. Allow to cool for five minutes and then cut in half lengthways and scoop the flesh into a bowl. Using a masher or a fork, mash the potato and then leave to cool.

Season the mashed potato with olive oil, lemon zest and juice to taste. Next, mix in the egg, salmon and the parsley. Form into small rounds that are about one-inch wide and half-inch deep. Chill for 5 minutes.

Dust each fishcake with the peppered flour and then, in a little oil, fry over a low heat for 2-3 minutes on each side. Drain on kitchen paper to remove excess grease and serve with salad and sprinkled with parsley.
