I am always looking for new ways to serve fish (particularly oily fish) to my family. I tried this out tonight and the family enjoyed them. I used spelt flour for the first time and the fritters were so nice and fluffy.
Spelt is not gluten or wheat free but it is a grain with a great nutritional profile.
I used tinned fish which is a cheaper alternative to fresh fish. The amount of omega 3 (DHA and EPA) is lower then fresh but it still contributes toward their daily intake.
1 medium carrot, grated
1/2 cup tinned whole sweetcorn ( not cream style)
210-250g tinned salmon ( skinless and boneless)
3/4 cup spelt flour
2 tsps chopped dill
1 tsp baking powder
salt & pepper
juice from 1 lemon
4 eggs, mixed together and beaten
Olive oil as needed
1/2 large ripe avocado
2 tsp olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
handful chopped coriander
salt & pepper
water as needed
1. Mix all ingredients for fritters together until everything well blended
2. Heat some olive oil in a pan
3. Spoon 1/4 cup off fish mixture into pan and flatten with back of the spoon to make a round
4. Turn fritter once one side cooked and cook till browned
5. Whilst the fritter were cooking, i prepared the avocado cream. I used my Nutribullet to make the avocado cream. I mixed all the ingredients together and blended. Depending on texture you may need to add extra water
5. Remove the fritters from pan and place on paper towel to absorb excess oil. Continue until batter is finished.
* i made smaller bite sized fritters for the kids so they were't too big and overwhelming.
I served my meal with roasted pumpkin and cucumber.
