Lemon fish cakes with remoulade sauce recipe

Lemon Fish Cakes with Remoulade

As you all know the Spring Menu/Meal Plan is almost ready to be revealed and I have been testing the recipes and enjoying every bite.  This particular recipe may be a family staple as it is light, crispy and wonderful for spring and summer.  The remoulade sauce is a favorite and goes with just about any seafood but I also love it on burgers and sandwiches (with or with out the bread).  This meal has lots of vinegar and the fresh herbs which makes it vibrant, fresh and perfect for spring…ENJOY!!

Lemon Fish Cakes: (Adapted from Everyday Food Light)



  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 tilapia fillets
  • salt & pepper
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup Helmann’s mayo
  • 1/2 cup parsley
  • 1/2 cup dill
  • 2 lemons, zested and juiced
  • 3 tbsp prepared horseradish
  • 1 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray or use 1 1/2 teaspoons of olive oil to coat.  Place tilapia fillets on pan, season with salt and pepper and bake for approx. 8 – 10 minutes.  Let fish cool, then flake with a fork.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, mayo, parsley, dill, lemon juice/zest and horseradish.  Fold in the fish and add in 1/2 cup bread crumbs.  (Paleo/no carb folks can substitute nuts or even coconut would be tasty).  Mix with everything together with your hands and form 1/4 cup sized patties
  3. Dredge each patty in the remaining panko crumbs, pressing down to adhere.
  4. Heat a large skillet on medium high with the remaining olive oil.  Place the fish cakes in the hot skillet and cook on each side until golden brown (4-6 minutes per side).  Serve with remoulade and slaw.


Cook the fish cakes until golden brown

  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar or champagne vinegar
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill
  • Few sprigs of fresh parsley


  1. Place all ingredients in the food process and pulse several times until all is incorporated.  Do not over mix- you want this to be the consistency of slightly thinned mayonnaise.

    the deputy director felt that although many panelists weren’t strongly
    against Qnexa, but possibly just had some lingering concerns that
    would make them vote no. In such case, take
    one in early morning and another supplement 4-5 hours before you sleep.
    The panel also described concerns over its long
    term cardiovascular effect, something that has come to be a major component in the recall of major diet pills in the past.

  6. When you’re going to rent a comic, think about these tips as a useful
    guide, pointing in the fitting direction. If I knew how to bake cookies, I would do that and send over
    a care package but Im much better at telling jokes
    so I go there and entertain, shake hands and thank the men
    and women who serve our country. Well, it can easily be because the audience has been watching
    her in the TV for the past 6 years, but nevertheless, her FACTS are easy
    to remember and apply to everyone.

    periodicals, books, music, movies, apps, site content and games.
