Hello everyone! I got to this post much later than I anticipated, but I didn’t have computer access last night and was at the airport by 5:30 AM! This is my last guest post for the week, since I am now back in Dallas. While I’m relaxing for the night, I’m going to give you all this awesome recipe to make. Maybe tonight?! 🙂
I am going to go out on a limb and say that most of you like to eat healthy. I know I do and it is now a lifestyle for me rather than a pain in the butt. Eating clean just makes me feel so much better.
As an East Coaster I naturally love to eat fresh fish. It’s usually a safe bet that if you buy fish around here, it’s been caught locally. I love that! I want to share a fish cake recipe with you all because they are delicious and pretty simple to whip up!
I was craving fish and decided to Google low carb fish cakes. Not that the potatoes in fish cakes are going to kill me, but I was feeling a little adventurous. I came across ibreatheimhungry.com and liked the looks of her recipe. I changed some things up, but I based my recipe on hers to make these low carb cauliflower fish cakes!
I drizzled mine with more lime olive oil as well as some dijon mustard and it was oh so delicious. You have a healthy, low-carb, protein-packed meal on your hands! Enjoy!
Low Carb Cauliflower Fish Cakes
- 2 cups of cauliflower puree
- 1/3 cup of vegetable/chicken broth
- 1 clove of garlic (or 2 or 3 depending on taste!)
- ½ tsp. of salt
- 2 tbsp. of cream or milk
- 1 tbsp. of butter
- 2 cups of cooked, flaked white fish (haddock, halibut or cod)
- 1 tbsp. of cilantro
- 2 tbsp. of seasoning (I used a combination of garlic powder, Italian seasoning, etc.)
- 1 tbsp. of finely chopped onions
- 1 large egg (beaten)
- Start by making the cauliflower puree, which is used as a binder for the cakes. Chop the cauliflower up and simmer with 1/3 cup of chicken or vegetable broth.
- Add the garlic and salt, then simmer until the cauliflower is very soft (~10-15 minutes).
- Let the cauliflower cool down and then puree in a food processor or blender with the cream/milk and butter.
- Now start on making the cakes. Combine the cooked fish, beaten egg, onions, seasonings/herbs and cauliflower puree you just made into a bowl and mix until combined.
- Place a pan over medium heat and add oil to cook cakes. (I used lime olive oil and it was such a delicious combination!) Add first cake.
- Flip the fish cake once it starts to brown lightly on one side. Repeat on other side.
- Top with your favorite fish condiment and enjoy!
