Fish Cakes (SIBO) Recipe

Super simple and clean fish cake recipe here. Having the chopped macadamia nuts on the outside gives a yummy crunch. Careful your pan doesn’t get too hot or your fish cakes might stick.



  • 750g white fish, diced
  • 4 spring onions, green part only, sliced
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 cm piece ginger, minced
  • 1/2 cup macadamia nuts, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 4 ice berg lettuce leaves
  • 1/2 cucumber, sliced
  • Handful mint, chopped
  • Handful fresh coriander, chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp lime juice


  • In a blender or food processor, add the fish, spring onion, 1 egg, 1 tbsp lime juice and ginger and blend until smooth.
  • In a bowl beat the remaining egg and place the macadamia crumbs on a plate.
  • Form the fish into patties and then dip in the egg and roll in the nuts and set aside. Do this until all the mixture is used up.
  • To cook them, in a medium/hot pan add the coconut oil and then add the fish cakes. Cook until nicely browned on both sides and cooked through.
  • Meanwhile place 2 lettuce leaves on each plate and sprinkle with the cucumber, mint, coriander, olive oil and lime juice and top with your cooked fish cakes.
