Easy fish cakes

Makes 25 cakes

1 tin pilchards in tomato sauce
2 carrots, coarsely grated
60 ml wholewheat flour
2 large eggs, beaten
125 ml oats
60 ml chutney or tomato sauce
60 ml fresh Italian parsley or coriander, chopped
5 ml ground coriander
15 ml fresh lemon juice
2,5 ml salt
freshly ground black pepper
15 - 30 ml oil for frying


  1. Place pilchards and sauce in an AMC 24 cm Dome and mince with a fork. 
  2. Add the remaining ingredients, except the oil, and mix until well combined. The mixture will be runny. Season to taste.
  3. Heat an AMC 28 cm Chef’s Pan over a medium temperature until the Visiotherm® reaches the first red area. Add 15 ml oil to the pan. 
  4. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture into the Chef’s Pan, fry for 3 – 5 minutes until golden brown and the surface is slightly set. Turn over and fry for a few more minutes until golden brown and cooked.
  • Pilchards can easily be substituted with sardines. Use the same quantity of fish as the original recipe, about 3 x 120 g cans with the liquid. If your mixture is a bit dry, add another egg or some water.
