Fish Cakes Recipe For Mediterranean Delicacies

Head straight on to the recipe for Fish Cakes ♥

I have partnered with Mediterranean Delicacies to bring you a recipe for fish cakes using their amazing range of fish I found at my local supermarket. The theme for my recipe is #AfroChic and it is the reason I chose to use Peppadews® as this piquanté pepper is a uniquely South African product.

If you open my fridge at any time, you will always find a small selection of meze to add to our weekend table at lunch time. This is the one meal I really do not like to spend time on and so I choose to go for convenience rather than effort. I make sourdough bread each weekend to accompany our spreads and dips. Dave spends as much time as possible working on the house and I am in the kitchen creating recipes for the blog. I tend to dish up dolmades, which I heat for a minute in the microwave. A tip given to me by my sister who learnt it from her Bulgarian husband. Another favourite of mine is taramosalata. I can spread this on anything and I love the taste. I also try and keep a Tupperware of hummus as this can be used as a spread or a dip for vegetables. Now, I always make my own hummus but I have yet to attempt making stuffed vine leaves or the taramosalata. For these two I turn to Mediterranean Delicacies as they have the recipe down pat. They are exactly my idea of an easy lunch time spread.
