Traditional fish cakes with vegetables – and a burger variant

Too gluten free: Eggs can be omitted. If you want milk-free fish cakes, choose a milk-free product such as Gryr or Farris.


  • about. 600 g haddock / haddock fillet, skin and bone free
    (Fresh rather than frozen gives the best fish cakes. You can also use salmon or trout.)
  • 1 ½ ts salt
  • 1 small onion / shallot (can be omitted for those who do not tolerate onions)
  • 1 egg (can be replaced with 2 teaspoons extra potato flour mixed with ½ dl Farris, water or milk)
  • about. 3 ½ share ice-cold milk or water / Farris
  • about. 1 tablespoon potato flour
  • ½ – ¾ ts finely grated nutmeg or possibly. 1 teaspoon mustard


NB: Fish, eggs and milk / Farris should be ice cold.

Cut the fish fillet into pieces and place in a food processor (with a knife). Add salt and run together at half speed until a sticky mass.

Add potato flour and dilute with ice-cold liquid little by little. The amount of liquid can vary depending on the fish.

Run together into a semi-coarse full-bodied mass. Grated nutmeg or mustard is added towards the end.
