Grain Free Salmon and Cauli Rostis
17 April 2017
Feeling super inspired to create something new, I decided to experiment with this salmon and cauliflower combo, and what a mix of flavours it was! Cauliflower (as I’m sure you know already) is incredibly versatile and works particularly well as a flour or grain alternative. The almond and coconut flour and egg help to bind all the ingredients properly and also allow for some crispiness. This is a fantastic low carb, high protein recipe that will leave you feeling satisfied for hours. It’s also quick and easy, especially if you buy your cauliflower pre-riced.
Serves 4-6 | Ready in 30mins
1 head fresh cauliflower – cut into florets
1 x 400g can cooked salmon
1 cup almond flour
40g coconut flour
30g finely grated parmesan cheese (optional
Pink Himalayan salt to taste
2 tsp. baking powder
1 finely chopped onion
1 tsp. dried oregano
Handful fresh parsley - chopped
Crushed garlic powder
1 tbsp. sesame seeds – lightly toasted
Extra virgin olive oil / olive oil spray for cooking
Steam cauliflower florets for 5-10minutes until soft. Once cooked through, drain excess water and place into a blender.
Place cauliflower in a blender and blend very lightly until cauliflower rice forms. Place cauliflower rice on a clean dish towel and gently squeeze to remove any excess moisture. Place into a large mixing bowl, mash lightly, and add remaining ingredients, mixing thoroughly. Using a good quality non-stick pan, drizzle a little olive or coat with olive oil spray, and allow to warm on medium heat.
Using a tablespoon, scoop generous amounts of the rosti mixture into the palm of your hand, and gently press into a patty or fritter shape. Place 3-4 rostis on heated pan and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side. Be sure to check that your rosti has browned properly before turning it to cook on the other side.
Once all salmon rostis are cooked through, place on paper towel to absorb any excess oil. Place on a serving dish and garnish with fresh parsley and lemon wedges.
Optional: Drizzle with my favourite Tahini Mayo
