The recipe for these quick and easy gluten and dairy free cod fishcakes came about when i was watching a TV programme all about how frozen fish fingers are made. This got me craving fish fingers which i bought the next day in asda.

As with all free from food products they aren’t as cheap as there regular counterparts so i decided i would make my own. I made them into fish cakes instead as it was quicker to shape them like that. These turned out much cheaper and healthier to make myself and this way you cam play around with the seasoning to create lots of different flavour combinations.

This recipe makes around 7 fishcakes which i eat in two servings. I usually pair them with salad and veggies to keep things as simple and quick as possible.  Each fish cake has 0.6f 5.5c 8.2p
