Spiced Salmon Bites

I whipped these up for a quick supper the other evening from store cupboard and fridge ingredients because our online grocery delivery was a disastrous shambles with quite a bit of it having to be redelivered the next day.  Thank goodness we were able to get some vegetables and salad greens from the allotment.  These tasty morsels went down very well with my hungry family and we'll definitely be having them again.




Spiced Salmon Bites

300g cooked salmon, or tinned salmon well drained
100g cooked rice, I used half a pouch of microwaveable brown rice
2 spring onions, finely sliced or 1 red onion, finely diced
1 free range egg
2 Tblsp finely chopped fresh coriander or 1 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp ground cumin
pinch of chilli powder (optional)
2 Tblsp or more plain wholemeal or white flour, enough to bind the mixture
a little oil for frying

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl until a stiff mixture forms.  Using wet hands divide the mixture into patties or balls, I made 15 from the mixture.  Heat a little oil in a frying pan over a moderate heat and cook the patties for a few minutes each side until heated through and golden.

I served these with salad, crudites and garlic and herb yoghurt dip.  They would also be fab in a wrap.




Here are a few other lovely recipes for fish morsels from my blogger friends:

  1. What a lovely quick dinner - I should bookmark this for when the ferries can't bring us fresh food during the winter months because of the storms. I rely on store cupboard ingredients quite a lot in the winter. Thanks for featuring my trout fishcake recipe :)
