Heart Salmon Cakes For A Romantic Meal#FishFriday

Salmon is rich in protein, vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids making it a very nutritious choice of protein.  One should include Salmon fish in their diet at least once a fortnight. 
These Heat Salmon Cakes is a simple and delicious way to prepare fresh salmon using staple pantry ingredients. These cakes can be made for a light and delicious lunch or supper.  I have  used of fresh salmon  and  it gives a richness of  flavor to the cakes.
This goes to our event for Fish Friday Foodies our Host is  Camilla our wherein she asked us to make Seafood Dishes for a Romantic Evening.
Makes 6 - 8 depending on the size
400 Grams Cleaned Fresh Boneless & Skinless Salmon
3 Tablespoons Heaped Mayonnaise
A Juice of half a Lemon
2 Big Bread slices - choppered
2 Tablespoon Chopped Flat Parsley
1 Teaspoon English Mustard
2 Scallions / Spring Onion - Only Whites - finely chopped
½ Teaspoon Black Pepper powder
¼ Teaspoon Paprika powder
½ Teaspoon Chopped Chives
3 Cloves Garlic - finely chopped
½ Teaspoon Sea Salt or to taste
For the coating 

Panko Breadcrumbs as required
1 Egg - lightly beaten
Oil as required for shallow frying


Cut the salmon into small cubes and pat them dry with a kitchen towel.
In a chopper add the onions, chives, parsley, salt, paprika and pepper powder and pulse it two or three times. Now add the mayonnaise and choppered bread and pulse it till mixed once or twice. Add the salmon cubes and pulse it again for two or three times ( do not pulse it for more time or else it will form a paste ) the salmon should be in tiny cubes. 
Take this out into a bowl and add the lemon juice, mix well and refrigerate it for at least 2 hours for the flavors to develop and also at this stage it is difficult to handle. The mix will firm up in the refrigerator.
Remove from refrigerator, divide the mixture into equal balls and  shaped them into heart cakes. As you can see made some small hearts and two big ones. Roll these in bread crumbs and keep this in the freezer for 15 minutes only.

In the meantime let's get prepare for the shallow frying. Heat a non-stick pan/skillet with oil.  Beat an egg lightly add a pinch of salt.  In a plate spread the panko bread crumbs. Keep aside .

Now that we are prepared for frying. Take the cakes out from the freezer.

Dip each cake in egg. Roll it in bread crumbs and immediately place it in the frying pan. Fry on medium high heat till golden on both sides. 
Serve them topped with Creamy Italian Dressing With Mayo & Red Wine Vinegar (recipe will be posted on 14th February ) and on a bed of Tabbouleh Salad With Glass of Pink Lemonade Vodka Cocktail. 
This was a real Romantic Meal / Valentine's Day celebrated in advance. If you have such a beautiful prepared meal with candels lit up who wants to wait for 14th Feb.
 Ahh! Yes if you have not had a Romantic meal like this, then do it !! Worth the effort!!

Saas Ni Machchi / Fish Stew - Parsi Style#FishFriday

It's our posting day for Fish Friday Foodies is making Seafood stews, theme chosen by Culinary Adventures with Camilla.  

A dish that is always on the menu of Parsi functions especially for their weddings and Navjot ceremonies. It's a white sauce stew, totally different, yet very tasty and delicious.
This is so simple, to make with few ingredients and a delicious dish, which you must definitely try soon! 
If you do not want to use Pomfret fish, can use any white fish fillets that are thick and fleshy. Can use with bones to like I, did. Using the fish with bones gives a nice taste and depth to the stew.
If you do not want to use green chillies in this dish can substitute it with pepper powder.

Serves 2 


1 Teaspoon Cumin seeds
3 Big Cloves Garlic - finely chopped
2 Green chillies - finely chopped
A Pinch of Turmeric powder
1 Large Onions - chopped finely
1 Medium Size Pomfret Fish - cut into thick pieces
1 Tablespoon White Vinegar
1 Teaspoon Sugar
2 Tablespoons Oil
1 Small Egg
1 Tablespoon All Purpose Flour
2 Cups  Water
Salt to taste

Clean  and wash the fish and marinate in turmeric and salt. While the fish is marinating.

In a pot, heat oil and fry the  chopped garlic saute for minute 
Add  onions until golden brown.  
Next, add in  the cumin seeds, chilly .
the flour as well as
Dry roast this mixture, ensuring there are no flour lumps. 
Once all the oil has been absorbed and the flour is sufficiently roasted (should be light brown in color) 
add in about 2 cups of water. 
Whisk the mixture to ensure there are no lumps. 
Bring this to a boil then add in the fish. 
Cover the saucepan with a lid and let it cook on a medium flame for 8 – 10 minutes until the fish is cooked.
While the fish is cooking, in a glass bowl  take the vinegar, sugar and egg. 
Whisk everything together until well blended .
Once the fish gravy  is done.  Let this gravy cool down for about  10 minutes.
Once cool,  remove the fish pieces on to a plate ( did this since pomfret is a very delicate fish and was worried that the fish will crumble)  add in the egg, vinegar mixture and 
give the gravy a good mix .  Place the pot back on to medium high flame and stir it continuously till it becomes  bit thick.  At this stage, you can  adjust the gravy  consistency accordingly.  This stew should have a nice sour kick.  
If your find it too sour, you can add a little more sugar, also  taste for salt  and add it as per your taste add in the fish pieces and  bring it to boil.  
This  is optional, wanted a  nice color contrast and garnish, popped  in few cherry tomatoes and just brought it to a gentle simmer.   If you do not want to add cherry tomatoes  then garnish it with cilantro / coriander leaves. 
  Oh! this delicious Saas Ni Machchi is ready.    Enjoy with hot rotis or with Yellow Rice.   
If you have leftovers, store in an airtight container in the fridge. The gravy will turn thick - a jelly like consistency – don’t worry once you heat this delicious gravy it will loosen.

My Notes 

This taste best with pomfret, but can make it with any other white fish like Surmai / Seer Fish or Salmon, Cod  and it will also tastes that good.

If you want a smooth texture  to the stew, then grind to fine paste the garlic, cumin seeds and green chillie
