Today I thought I’d share a recipe with ya’ll. With this low carb lifestyle I am on, I always have to think of new and exciting recipes. One of the things that can get you down when dieting is boring and bland food so I am always on the hunt for healthy alternatives to my favourite foods. I also need to ensure that these recipes are low in carbs and high in fat.
Fish cakes are a regular in our household but it’s usually made with tinned pilchards and bread. I can’t have either of these so I needed to improvise. So I got a tin of tuna and instead of using bread to bind it I used Heba Pap. Heba Pap is a combination of flours that are allowed in the banting diet such as almond flour and coconut flour. I use this a lot in my recipes.
This recipes yields 4 small cakes. That would be dinner and lunch for the next day sorted. I just judged by the eye when it came to some of the ingredients.
So check out the recipe below…
1 tin of tuna in water or oil drained
1/4 small onion grated
1/4 small tomato grated
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
1 teaspoon parsley
1 tablespoon Heba Pap
salt , pepper and chilli flakes to taste
olive oil to fry
Chuck all your ingredients in a bowl. Mix with a spoon or your hands. Form 4 balls and press into small patties. Fry the patties in olive oil till golden brown.
And that’s it hey. It’s super easy and packed with flavour. A perfect banting friendly dish. I had my fish cakes with a green salad and green beans fried in butter and garlic.
I will continue posting recipes for you guys. So keep your eyes peeled for the next one.
Till Next Time
