Fish Cakes - Recipe
My Honey made the Fish Cakes for this wonderful end-of-summer meal. What are Fish Cakes, you ask?
Fish Cakes, a regular dish in Norway, are made somewhat like salmon croquettes, but have a different flavor.
Here is My Honey's Fish Cakes recipe:
3 1/2 t salt
1 t Nutmeg
1 t Ginger
2-1/2 + T Potato Starch (Finely ground white wheat flour can be substituted. Do not use self-rising flour.)
5 oz. milk
5 oz. heavy whipping cream
3 or 4 pieces of green onion finely chopped
2 small white onions chopped finely or minced with fish (or 1 red onion, 1 white onion)
Pepper to taste
1 T minced garlic (optional)
Butter for frying
Mince the fresh fish.
Mix with the other ingredients.Place fish mixture in refrigerator for two hours to marinate before frying.
Fry for four minutes or until brown on each side. Do not allow to cool before serving by placing in warmed covered dish.
While My Honey made the Fish Cakes, I took pictures and made the sides (salad, baked potatoes, bread) for this delicious dinner.
The bread is my Garlic and Cream Cheese Bread, recipe published earlier here.
