Baked Fish patties
Today is a meat-free day, right? So what should we eat? Fish patties, of course! Tender, tasty, and nutritious, and I added vegetables to them so the kids would get their veggies. Add a side dish and you have a perfect meal.
Smashed potatoes are excellent; it’s cold outside so tomato soup is a must and sundried tomatoes complete the meal. Golden patties that are a crowd pleaser at my house. Hope they are at yours as well!
Makes 25 patties
600 grams freshly ground white fish
1 level tsp paprika
1/3 cup flour
2-3 Tbsp parsley
1 Tbsp chicken bouillon
Ground black pepper
1 tsp salt (if necessary, to taste)
1. Chop the onion, put 2-3 Tbsp of oil in a pan and fry the onion until golden.
2. Grate the carrots and place in a bowl. Chop the parsley and mix all the ingredients, including the onion, until well combined. Wet hands and form mixture into patties.
3. Preheat an oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Line a baking tray with greased parchment paper and arrange the patties, flattening them somewhat.
4. Bake for around 30 minutes or until golden. Don’t try and flip the fritters before the time is up. Flip and bake on the other side for 15 minutes.
*5. If you prefer to fry the patties, heat 2-3 Tbsp of oil in a pan and fry the patties until golden on both sides. Remove from the pan and let drain on a plate lined with paper towels.
Served with Sun Dried Tomatoes in Olive Oil, smashed potatoes, tomato and pearl barley soup.
