Cook Time:


  • 1 pound(s) Wild white fish chopped into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup(s) bread crumbs (whole grain), plus extra to coat the cakes
  • 1 tablespoon(s) ground chia seeds
  • 3 tablespoon(s) water
  • 1 cup(s) cilantro chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon(s) garlic minced
  • 1/2 tablespoon(s) ginger minced
  • dash(es) salt & pepper
  • 1 tablespoon(s) coconut oil (or olive oil)


  1. In a small bowl combine the chia seeds and water and let it sit for about 10 minutes. It will form a gel that you will use to keep your cakes together. Chia is a great alternative to eggs that adds extra omega's, fiber and protein. If you don't have chia seeds you can use 1 organic egg.

  2. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

  3. In a separate bowl combine the fish, breadcrumbs, cilantro, garlic, ginger lime juice, salt & pepper. Add the chia mixture and form into 4 cakes, squeezing out any excess liquid.

  4. Roll the cakes in bread crumbs to coat.

  5. Take a frying pan and warm up the coconut oil. Place the cakes in the pan and fry on each side for approximately 1 minute to toast the outside of the cake.

  6. Place the cakes in a baking dish and put into the oven for approximately 10 - 12 minutes.

  7. Serve with a slice of lemon.
