I’m back! Salmon Cakes

Well I’ve been on vacation for a while, but now im back and making some more delicious food.

Salmon Cakes

Salmon, dill, 3-4 cloves of garlic, 1/2 of an onion, 1small tin of sliced water chestnuts, a pepper, 1egg and breadcrumbs. 


Dice onion, garlic, chestnuts and pepper into small pieces. Then cut the salmon into about 1cm cubes. Mix everything together (including 2 tsp of dill). Season with salt and pepper. Add the egg and a handful of bread crumbs at first. Don’t add too much or the mixture will get dry.


When you have a slightly sticky mixture, spray your baking sheet with oil and make tennis ball sized salmon balls. Place on sheet and gently press down.

I added some bread crumbs on top for an extra crunch :) to do this… Mix plain bread crumbs with dill, salt and pepper. Sprinkle on top of each cake and gently press down. Spray the tops of the salmon cakes with a little more oil.  Bake for 20min at 350 and then 5-7 min at 450 so that the cakes turn golden brown.

Serve with sauce:

My sauce had sour cream, 1 lemon, dill, garlic powder and onion powder.


Enjoy :)

Seared Tilapia with Sesame Salad


I made my own salad dressing! It was actually a lot of fun. First I started toasting some pine nuts (I keep these frozen so that I always have them on hand). Then I finely chopped a clove of garlic and ginger and put it in a bowl with 1 egg yolk, some sugar, a little rice wine vinegar and a pinch of salt.  As I was mixing these ingredients I slowly started to add some sesame oil until it looked like dressing!

After I had my dressing made.. caramelized slices of onions in a pan with butter. While that was cooking,  I sprinkled a fillet of tilapia with some garlic powder, onion powder and salt.  When the onions had finished caramelizing I removed them from the pan and cooked my fish in the remaining butter with a little sesame oil. Let it brown on both sides. Then all that was left was plating.

Start with a pile of Spring Mix, sprinkle pine nuts and onions, place fish on top and then cover everything in dressing :) It was as simple as that! Happy Eating.

Fish Tacos with Spring Mix!

No meat today!  So for lunch I decided to have fish tacos.  I had some of the Gordon Fisherman frozen battered fish in my freezer so I popped that into the oven first.  Took out a par-baked tortilla (so much better than the ready made ones) put it on the hot pan to cook. and in the mean time mixed up some sauce.  I love experimenting with sauce.  This one I used slaw dressing, paprika, Cajun seasoning for some spice and a little bit of rice vinegar and sugar to thin it out.  It was pretty delicious! I didn’t have any cabbage/ shredded lettuce so I used Spring Mix and also a slice of onion.  Overall I’d say it took me about 30 min to make this (simply because the fish takes a while to preheat/bake)…Happy Eating! :)

Fried Rice with Fish


It’s Ash Wednesday! That mean’s no meat today and no meat on Fridays from now until Easter.  I decided to start my Lent season with some fried rice topped off with green beans and tilapia.  I used the pre-packaged frozen tilapia that I always have in my freezer, left over rice from a previous dinner and frozen green beans.The tilapia is seasoned with garlic powder, onion powder, salt and white pepper then pan fried in chili oil and vegetable oil.  The rice is made with onions, garlic, ginger, egg, soy sauce, rice wine and soy sauce.  I sprinkled everything with lao gan ma, which is a Chinese chili oil.  Finally the green beans were just steamed with a little garlic powder.  Took about 20 min, start to finish, to make this :)
