  • 1 pound flaky white fish (halibut, cod, etc.)
  • Pinch of Kosher salt and ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed meal
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha sauce
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Season the fish with salt and pepper and drizzle all around with the olive oil. Bake for about 12 minutes. Remove the fish from the oven and let cool for about 20 minutes.
  • Shred the fish with your hands into a bowl, squeezing out and discarding any liquid.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients except for the coconut oil. Mix together thoroughly and form into little cakes. You should end up with 6 fish cakes.
  • Heat the coconut oil in a skillet at medium-high heat. Pan-fry the cakes on each side until golden brown, about 3 minutes on each side.
