Something to do with aussie salmon.

I know australian salmon mite not be the best eating fish in the world but they make bloody awesome fish cakes! :md:
Take some skinned and boned fillets (after you bleed the fish out), cut into cubes (roughly 3cm dice)
put into a food processor with 3 cloves of crushed garlic,
3cm piece of ginger,
half a bunch of corriander,
a slurp of sweet chilli sauce,
1 egg,
roughly 1/4 cup of bread crumbs (or until you can mould mix into patties)
blitz all of the above in food processor adding breadcrumbs til you get the right consistency (don't forget salt and pepper!)
mould into patties and roll in more breadcrumbs patting off the excess
firm in the fridge for 1/2 an hour then fry off on a medium heat in some butter and oil.
serve with sweet chilli sauce (or whatever tickles your fancy! :ll: )

Try them in a smoker especially using tea tree needles ,but hickory (pecan) is also O.K. cut out the blood line if you want
We had a taste test last year at a kayakers B.B.Q. using snapper, tailor, & australian salmon,the salmon won by miles & its so easy to do,Its also great smoked & chilled in the fridge served with salards or on savory biscuits with blue vein cheese delicious. impress your friends Cheers Getayak :cool:

Beer battered fresh is beautiful chewin as well. (Add lime and black pepper seasoning into the flour mix before you put fish into batter mix, yum) Cut into about 6-8cm pieces. Served with salad or by itself. :yum: :yum: Brilliant smoked with Jarra. :yum:

Cheers and tight lines,
Take your rubbish out full, bring it back empty.
