Fiskefrikadeller - Danish Fish Cake


Serves 4

Ingredients:

1. 600 g cod or salmon or a combination, skinned, boned and cut into smaller pieces
2. 1 egg
3. 2 TBS white wholewheat flour
4. 1 TBS rolled oats (optional)
5. 1 carrot diced (optional)
6. 1 handful of dill or parsley chopped (optional)
7. 100 ml low-fat fresh milk (traditional Danish recipe uses heavy cream)
8. 1 tsp salt
9. 6 turns black pepper mill

10. 2 TBS cooking oil (or you can use a mixture of butter and cooking oil)

Directions:

1. Dice carrots by hand, food processor or blender. If using a blender, you need to add water and pulse it. Drain off the liquid and press dry the carrots.

2. Add fish and salt and blend in a food processor or blender.

3. Add flour, rolled oats, diced carrots, milk, pepper, parsley or dill and blend by hand or in a blender/food processor till combined and smooth. The mixture will be a bit sticky.

4. Let the mixture rest for 15-30 minutes in the fridge if you have the time.

5. Heat cooking oil on a pan.

6. Use an ice-cream scoop to form the mixture into fish cakes and fry them on medium heat (no. 5 on my stove) for 5 minutes on each side or until golden using medium heat to ensure the fish is cooked without burning the fish cakes. It's important to have patience when frying the fish cakes and not rush it with higher heat.

7. Sprinkle some chopped dill or parsley and serve.

Tips:

You can also bake them in the oven at 180-degree celsius. Give it 7 minutes on each side.

Additional Information:

Just trying to squeeze in more fish into the diet. Made the Danish fiskefrikadeller today with a simpler version of the recipe with lesser ingredients than the earlier recipe I posted. It actually tasted better. So I will jot it down and archive it here.

I dice the carrots using the Magimix blender, using water and pulsing it. You can actually use half of the water than what was shown in the picture above.


Drain off the liquid and press dry the carrots.


Don't throw away the water. You can drink it like you are drinking your regular water. It tastes like water, but with all the vitamins in it.

Add all the ingredients into the blender... such as 1 tablespoon of oats

2 tablespoon of wheat germ

Crack in 1 egg

Add 1 teaspoon of salt

Add a few turns of the peppermill as desired

Add a handful of parsley. Pre-chopping it is not required.

Add in the diced carrot

Add in the fish - here I added a combination of codfish and salmon. I first cut the fish fillets into smaller fishes. I then add it into the blender with the other ingredients... 

Lastly, add 1 tablespoon of ground flax seeds and a teaspoon of chopped ginger

Add 100 ml of milk

I start at speed 1 and slowly work it up to speed 2 and ended with the last few seconds on speed 3.

I also use the spatula while blending to scrape down the side and guide the mixture towards the center of the blender.

The blending is done :-) Ideally let the mixture rest in the fridge for 15-30 minutes.

Heat up the pan with 2 tablespoons of cooking oil and 1 teaspoon of butter.

Use a tablespoon to form the mixture into fish cakes and fry them on medium heat for 5 minutes on each side or until golden using medium heat to ensure the fish is cooked without burning the fish cakes. 

Thus, it's important to have patience when frying the fish cakes and not to try to quicken the cooking with higher heat.
