Free Healthy Recipe - Mackerel and Quinoa Patties

Dairy free, Low fat, Low GI, Wheat Free

Copyright John Paul Urizar

If you've made a batch of quinoa from the night before, here's a wonderful way to use up leftovers. Combined with mackerel these make an excellent speedy evening meal. Using quinoa instead of the potato makes the fish patties a little more crumbly, but lowers the GI - just handle them with care.

200 grams quinoa, cooked
250 grams canned mackerel, drained
2 tbsp coriander, chopped
½ lime zested and juiced
Coriander Dressing:
1 tbsp coriander, chopped

Combine the ingredients together and pour over the salad greens.

Mash all the ingredients together until well combined. Using your hands form patties approx 5cm in diameter and 2 cm thick. Cook with a smear of olive oil in a non stick pan frying for 5 minutes each side or until slightly golden.

Serve with a mixed green salad and coriander dressing.

Note : Mackerel can be substituted with salmon, tuna or sardines.

Makes 6 servings (serve = 1 patty)
