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.

  1. That creamy peppadew pepper dip sounds amazing – I bet it adds so much flavor!

  2. Yes, I love to have hommus on hand as well. So convenient and versatile. You’re right you know, sometimes it’s not worth making something if someone is doing it so right. And you time is money too so why not leave it to the professionals? Love your fish cakes. They look delish. A perfect lunch.

  3. Hi Tandy,your week-end meals and snacks sounds amazing and very healthy too. Love the fish cakes and presentation.

  4. These fish cakes look delicious. Yum. What does the peppadew pepper taste like? Is it really spicy and hot? I’d love to spend a day in your fridge, you keep a lot of yummy stuff on hand. Cheers
