Tilapia Fish Cakes with Lime Mayonnaise


Another week has gone by- sometimes time does fly. We still have so many boxes to pack, sigh. Decluttering obviously leads to mess- at least in our house. Nevertheless, it is Food Matters Project Day. Today’s assignment is called Braised Chickpea Fritters. Check out Lena’s blog for the original recipe.

I did not have chickpeas but a lot of fish at hand. We bought tilapia filets so I used them instead. I know, it is a far stretch but you gotta use, what you have at home, right?

Tilapia Fish Cakes

Adapted from Jamie Oliver and Mark Bittmann

3 Tilapia filets

2/3 cup milk

3 bay leaves

Salt and Pepper

1 cup mashed potato

1/2 cup zucchini cut in small pieces

1/2 cup yellow pepper

handful parsley chopped

handful of pineapple mint or regular mint

Zest of 2 lemons and 2 limes

1 tsp chipotle chili

2 flax eggs – or regular eggs


Preheat oven to 190C. Place fish with the milk and the bay leaves in a baking tray and bake for about 15min. Cool and then flake the fish and mix with the other ingredients. Add breadcrumbs so that you are able to form small patties without the mixture falling apart. Fry them in a pan until golden.

We ate our fish cakes with a Lime mayonnaise and radish sprouts on a bun.

Lime Mayonnaise

For the lime mayonnaise we mixed it with lime zest, juice, salt and pepper. It is really easy!

    Oh your fish cakes look awesome! And the lime mayo, I have never made lime mayo before but will definitely give it a try soon! Good luck with the packing… I started a little bit here and there but everytime I delve too much, I feel overwhelmed and just stop. Sigh, sigh, sigh!

      Haha I know how you feel. We pack „the clutter“ but somehow it makes it worse. I stare at things wondering if I should put them in boxes or if I will need them before the actual move in late October/November.

    I know how you feel, I am trying to declutter before my move in a few weeks and everytime I am creating more of a mess. And I am with you on using what you have. I am out of chickpeas now and am not going to buy more before I move. No matter how much I love them, there are still beans and lentils around.
    Your fish cakes and the lime mayonnaise sound and look really delicious.

      I was very lucky to find them, they are crunchy and a bit spicy. I put them on pretty much everything..ok, maybe not my oatmeal …LOL

    What! oN gound garbanzos? Shame on you. LOL, I hate it when I go to start a recipe and realize I don’t have the main ingredient. But these talipia burgers sound like a good alternative.

    I meant to say „no ground garbanzos?“
