Super Quick Gluten Free Recipe - Smoked Mackerel and Sweet Potato Cakes

Published 6 June, 2007

Super quick gluten free lunch or dinner, so I'll be super quick writing it out...

Gluten Free Smoked Mackerel and Sweet Potato Cake
2 smoked mackerel
4 medium sweet potatoes
1 teaspoon gluten free thai fish sauce
1 lemon, juiced
1 garlic clove, peeled
big handful of fresh herbs, watercress and rocket
small amount of rice flour

First wash and cook your sweet potatoes - this will take about 5-6 minutes in the microwave, alternatively boil in water for 20 minutes (but obviously not as quick!). When they're cooked, peel them and discard the skin.

Meanwhile, take the thai fish sauce, lemon juice, garlic and fresh green herbs and leaves and blitz in a blender for 30 seconds.

In a bowl, mix your mackerel (I prefer it skinned but you don't have to), blitzed ingredients, and sweet potato. Mix thoroughly but gently.

Heat up a frying pan and put in a little olive oil. Shape the mixture into golfball sized balls, roll in seasoned rice flour and squish into a burger patty. Fry the cakes for about 3-4 minutes until it's golden brown and crispy, then flip and fry for a few minutes on the other side.

This super quick gluten free recipe for smoked mackerel and sweet potato cakes is a cunning way to get fresh greens into the mouths of babes and others who turn their noses up at such things. And of course, they taste great with tomato ketchup!

Serve with a fresh green salad for a light lunch or with some savoury quinoa if you're feeling hungry.
