GF Salmon & Lemon Fish Cakes

As a business that supplies food and drink to the public, it’s incredibly important to offer gluten-free options on your menu, as well as a full allergen card of the menu. People with coeliac disease, and the friends and family they eat with, are worth an estimated £100 million to the hospitality industry. So whether you make an entire gluten-free menu or simply make some tweaks to original dishes, it really is worth investing the time in.



Makes 20 mini fish cakes

  • 2 large baking potatoes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Grated zest and juice of ½ lemon
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 140g smoked salmon trimmings, plus extra to serve
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley, plus a little extra for topping
  • 2 tbsp gluten-free flour mixed with 1tsp coarsely ground pepper
  • A touch of  oil – for frying

  3. Season with olive oil, lemon zest and juice to taste, then mix in the egg, salmon and parsley. 
  4. Shape into small rounds 3cm wide and 1cm deep. Chill for 15 minutes in the fridge.
