Now that the weather is warming up, I’m really getting in the mood for warm salads (I find cold food a little unappetising) so I decided to try my hand at making some fish cakes from scratch. I looked at a few recipes online for inspiration, but ended up going my own way, selecting all the ingredients I love and hoping for the best! The end results was actually really good, they didn’t fall apart, the fish wasn’t dry, and most importantly, they were tasty! Just in case they tasted a little dry, I decided to make up my own garlic chilli mayonnaise to go with it, which I’ve also featured below. I’m quite into my spice at the moment as it really adds flavour which us FODMAPPERs can often miss out on!
To make the garlic chilli mayo, it's super easy, just fry red chilli in a little garlic oil until it's softened. Leave to cool. Before serving the fishcakes, stir the garlic chilli into the mayonnaise and voila! Simple, yet a tasty low FODMAP dip.
The recipe makes approximately 6 fishcakes, which I served with garlic chilli mayo, a mixed leaf salad and a slice of lemon. Fresh and delicious! Let me know if you give this recipe a try, I’d love to see how they turn out. Tag me on my social media or accounts, or send me a direct message! Enjoy!
