Smoked Kahawai Fish Cakes -

Here is a  recipe for smoked Kahawai fish cakes - yeh it is bloody good!



 
I used two Kahawai (so halve if necessary)

 
  • 2 Smoked Kahawai
  • 6 boiled potatoes
  • Handful of finely chopped parsley
  • Cracked Pepper
  • 2 beaten egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons mayonaise
  • 1 teaspoon horseradish sauce (good quality)
  • 1 teaspoon dried kawakawa

 
For smoking rub:
(for smoking mix - split and dry Kahawai - rub with brown sugar and Maldon sea salt - I also like using Manuka)

 
  • Remove the meat from the smoked Kahawai (I also remove the dark brown meat - as it is very bitter)
  • Gently flake the fish - and crumble in the potato (try to avoid the potato becoming completely mashed!)
  • Add the lemon juice, pepper. horseradish and kawakawa, mayonaise and gently mix in.
  • Fold in the egg whites.

(ensure the mizture is not too dry!)

 
Flour and fry in oil.

 
Goes very well with a rocket salad - and a feijoa chutney.
