Gluten Free Fishcakes

Course: Appetizer
Cuisine: American
Servings: 10 fishcakes
Calories: 112kcal


  • 1 7-ounce salmon fillet skin and bones removed
  • 1 7-ounce cod fillet skin and bones removed
  • 6 tablespoons ground red lentils divided
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil plus more for frying
  • Juice and zest of ½ medium lemon
  • Kosher or fine sea salt to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 small handful fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves finely chopped, plus more for serving
  • 1 small handful fresh coriander leaves finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons polenta
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • Mayonnaise for serving
  • Lemon wedges for serving


  • Place the salmon and cod fillets, 2 tablespoons ground red lentils, the olive oil, lemon juice and zest, salt, and pepper into a food processor. Pulse until completely smooth. Add the chopped parsley and coriander leaves and stir well with a spoon. Using your hands, shape the mixture into 10 patties, about ¼-inch thick.
  • In a bowl, combine the remaining 4 tablespoons ground red lentils with the polenta.
  • Dip each patty first into the beaten egg, letting any excess drip off, then cover them in the lentil/polenta crumbs.
  • Heat a large frying pan on medium heat and add about 3-4 tablespoons of olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the patties and cook for about 4 minutes per side, until crisp and golden.
  • Serve hot with extra parsley sprinkled over top, a side of mayonnaise, and lemon wedges for squeezing.
