FISH RECIPE: MIEKOJÄRVI PIKE PATTIES
- Boneless ground pike filets 1 kg
- Salt 2 tsp
- White pepper 1 tsp
- 1 egg (recipe also works without, if allergic)
- Melted butter (cooled) 50g
- Whipped cream 2 dl
- Chives, amount to taste
- A small sprig of thyme
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped small
- Juice and grated peel of ½ lemon
If you want a more gourmet flavour, add 100g of crumbly blue cheese to the mixer.
Leave the pulp in the refrigerator for a while, for flavour’s sake.
Make a full-size patty. This is easier if you have a mold. Fry in butter until brown on both sides (but do not fry 100% done.)
Place the fried patties on a baking sheet and bake at 150 degrees for about 10 minutes.
Enjoy warm with potatoes or salad. Melted butter or white sauce goes well with the patties. When cold, the patties make a delicious meal or snack from the fridge. You can also make a bigger batch and freeze for later use.
