Fish Cakes:
1 whole fish (I used flounder fillet of about 0.60-1.0 pounds)
4 potatoes, boiled
2 tablespoons of sour cream
1/2 lemon, juiced (to season the fish)
1 tablespoon of chopped dill
4 stalks of scallions (green onion) chopped
4 tablespoon coconut shredded and dehydrated, unsweetened
1 cup of Panko (breadcrumbs)
2 eggs, beaten
olive oil (to cook the cakes)
salt & pepper
zest of 1 lemon

Lemon Mayo:
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 garlic clove, minced

For Fish Cakes:
Season the fish with salt, pepper, and the juice of half a lemon. Steam the fish until cooked, about 15 to 20 minutes (I did it in the oven). Boil the potatoes until soft, drain. Mash the potatoes with the sour cream. Flake the fish and combine with the mashed potatoes, the eggs, the lemon zest, the chopped dill, the chopped scallions, and the shredded coconut. Season with salt and pepper. Make patties and coat each cake with the panko, pressing to adhere. Cook the fish cakes in a large frying pan over medium heat with a little olive oil on each side until golden.

For the Lemon Mayo:
Combine all ingredients.

I used the catch of the day, but you can make them with tuna, salmon, shrimp. Coconut fish cakes are easy to make and nice to enjoy on a weekday with a green salad, sitting al fresco with a cold beer or a white wine.
