In the absence of fresh fish I have been using canned red salmon. Throughout the summer I have been making nice Thai style fish cakes. Yesterday I felt like a bit of a change. Partly because I wanted to use up some of the zucchinis. In the absence of a recipe I made these up.
Salmon and Zucchini Patties
About 2 cups of coarsely grated zucchini, if you are using bought ones you should probably drain them or squeeze them a bit, I find the fresh ones are nowhere near as watery
1/2 red onion finely chopped
400 g red salmon
1 cup course sourdough breadcrumbs, if we have any stale bread i make it into breadcrumbs and freeze them so I usually have a good supply
combine all together using a fork, you don't want to make this too smooth
Form into large ball and roll in more breadcrumbs
sit in the fridge for half an hour or so and then fry in oil until golden and crunchy
I served mine with some aoili and a cucumber salad
I have also been looking for ways of using cucumbers as we have a lot. I made this Cucumber Salad
and it was delicious. I added cherry tomatoes to the recipe.
I am also experimenting with pickling cucumbers. I found this recipe for Dill Cucumbers
I just made one small jar using small cucumbers to see how it turns out.
I also like the sound of this, Cucumber Pickle a bit different flavour to my usual. I will give them a try later on. I love having access to all the recipes on the Internet. Although I have a lot of recipe books sometimes I cant find exactly what I want.
