Tasty Sardine Fishcakes: #149 of 1000 Sustainable Food Experiments

I eat this superfood salad most days for lunch, often with kale instead of lettuce. It’s so easy to make and has all the nutrients I need. Today I decided to mix it up a bit and make the sardines into fishcakes. It was a tasty addition!

This is part of our 1,000 Food Experiments to create sustainable meals for our family and hopefully yours.

Ingredients ($5.50 for 6 fishcakes)

2 cans of sardines in water (not smoked) – $3.96
1/2 cup oat flour (oats ground up in the blender) – $0.06
1 egg – $0.29
1 tsp each onion powder, dill, chili powder, ginger – $1.12
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsp olive oil for frying – $0.20

Directions

1. In a medium bowl, mix all the ingredients except the olive oil. Be sure to mix well. It will make a thick mixture.

2. Grab handfuls of the sardine mix and make patties. In a large pan, heat the olive oil over medium high heat, then add the patties in. Cook for about 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

3. Serve over top superfood salad or with your favorite salad or sandwich fixings. Your body and mind will thank you!
