Gluten-Free Salmon Fish Cakes


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. 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


Microwave potatoes on high for ten minutes until tender. Leave to cool for five minutes, and then scoop the flesh into a bowl. Mash the potato and leave to cool.

Season with olive oil, lemon zest and juice to taste, then mix in the egg, salmon and parsley. Shape into small rounds 1-inch wide and 1/2 -inch deep. Chill for a5 minutes.

Dust each cake with the peppered flour, then fry over a low heat in a little oil for 2-3 minutes on each side. Drain on kitchen paper and serve with salad and garnished with parsley.
