Salmon Fish Cakes
Here’s an easy but nutritious recipe to make for your baby or toddler! I used to make these as a finger food for E when he was a baby and now that he’s a little older, they make a great mealtime or snack option.

These tasty fish cakes are family-friendly and work great in lunchboxes. Allergy friendly - these are gluten free, nut free and dairy free. 

  • 350 – 400g skinless, boneless raw salmon, minced
  • 2 carrots (200g), peeled and finely minced
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 4 Tbsp (3 – 4 stalks) spring onion, finely minced
  • 1/8 tsp salt (omit for baby < 1)
  • 1 – 2 Tbsp oil for frying

  1. If your fish isn’t minced, cut fish into cubes and pulse in a food processor a few times until minced. Or mince by hand using a knife. 
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Using a pair of chopsticks, stir vigorously in one direction for a few mins until sticky. 
  3. Form mixture into 10 patties (approx. 3 Tbsp each). 
  4. Heat up oil in a non stick frying pan. Cook patties over medium heat for a few mins on each side until cooked through and slightly golden. You might have to do this in 2 batches. 
  5. Serve warm. Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 2 – 3 days.
