Servings: 6 servings

Prep time: 20  minutes

Cook time: 20 minutes

Total time: 40 minutes


  • 1.76 lb. Haddock defrosted if frozen
  • 2 cups Cauliflower grated
  • ½ cup Almond flour
  • 4 large Eggs
  • 4 tablespoon Ghee
  • 4 tablespoon Flaxseed ground
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon Parsley finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Black pepper


  1. To prepare the cauliflower, boil a pot of salt and cook the grated cauliflower for 5-7 minutes. Then, strain it and transfer it to a cheesecloth or clean tea towel to remove all the water by squeezing it.
  2. Next, heat a non-stick pan with one tablespoon of ghee and sauté the cauliflower with garlic powder and a pinch of salt for 3-4 minutes.
  3. For the fish, pat it dry with paper towels and heat another tablespoon of ghee in a separate clean pan. Cook the fish for 3-5 minutes, then flake and set it aside.
  4. Combine the cauliflower, fish, eggs, almond flour, flaxseed, lemon zest, parsley, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Knead the mixture to form a dough and shape it into cakes.
  5. Heat the remaining ghee in a pan and cook the fish cakes on each side for 3-4 minutes. Serve hot.
