Ultra low fat lemon sole fish cakes

Ultra low fat lemon sole fish cakes

My work as a Fish Fanatic for Fish is the Dish continues. Having received a delivery of incredibly delicious, fantastically fresh and beautifully prepared lemon sole from John and Delish Fish, here is another of my recipes.

Delish Fish Lemon Sole Fillets

I developed this recipe for these fishcakes, as I wanted something very quick and simple to prepare, but really healthy too. I love fishcakes, but they can be quite an unhealthy meal. These are very light and delicately flavoured. Feel free to add more flavour if you like. I wanted something that would really make the most of the delicate flavour of the lemon sole.

This is a very simple and quick recipe to prepare with very little skill involved – perfect if you are in a hurry and want something straight forward to cook. I like to serve these with a salad for a light lunch.

Ultra low fat lemon sole fish cakes

Serves 2


  • 4 lemon sole fillets
  • 1 tablespoon Total 0% Greek yoghurt
  • ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ a beaten egg
  • 1 handful of chopped fresh parsley and chives
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper


1)   Steam the fish for around 10 minutes until it is cooked and flakes easily. Place the fish into a large mixing bowl and flake using two forks

2)   Add the yoghurt, mustard, egg and herbs and stir in well

3)   Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan

4)   Spoon the fishcake mixture in – this should make around 4 medium sized fishcakes

5)   Cook for around 3 minutes on each side until golden brown

6)   Season with salt and pepper and serve with a wedge of lemon and a side salad

Thank you to Delish fish and Fish is the Dish for sending me this beautiful fish to cook with

    That looks lovely Charlotte.

    I am sure that there is a Donna Hay recipe using only egg white to bind. Even lower in fat – although I would just use the egg yolk for custard for ice cream!

    I added some panko crumbs, lime juice and sriracha. Delish. Thanks.
