How are you doing on your fish intake? Is it difficult to eat fish regularly? Then, my friends, may I suggest these babies. They use canned salmon (similar to tuna), so there’s nothing to thaw.

Do you have trouble with the taste of fish? Again, these. The white sweet potato mellows out that fish flavor, but the rest of the flavors – lemon zest, lemon juice, capers and green onions – turn up the volume. Add a little squeeze of lemon at the end, and you are golden. You might not even notice that you are eating fish!

Helpful kitchen equipment

There are two items that would be really helpful for this recipe:

  1. a microplane (a.k.a. a rasp)
  2. a mini food processor

Using a microplane is the quickest way I know of to get just the fine zest from citrus. You basically use it like you do a nail file. The mini food processor? I know, I know. I talk about it all the time. That’s because they really, really are handy! Whip up a pesto sauce, or whatever. In this recipe, we’re using it to purée the sweet potato mixture. It works like a champ!

Ingredients

Directions

  • Fit a saucepan with a steamer basket, and fill with water, just until water reaches the basket. Cover the saucepan, and place over medium high heat. When water comes to a boil, add sweet potatoes to the basket. Cover and steam until fork tender, 5-10 minutes.
  • Remove sweet potatoes to a mini food processor. Add lemon juice, coconut milk and arrowroot. Process until smooth. Remove mixture to a bowl. Stir in salmon, lemon zest, parsley, capers and salt.
  • Heat olive oil in a skillet or chef’s pan over medium heat. Meanwhile, form 4 patties from the salmon mixture. (Tip: It helps to wet your hands.). When oil is hot, carefully place patties in the pan along with the green onions. Leave undisturbed for 4-5 minutes. Turn over (only once), and leave undisturbed for 3-4 minutes. Allow the green onions to brown. Serve with lemon wedges.
