I have a confession. I screw up big time whenever I have to pan fry a fish! They often break up into pieces after I try to flip it over the other side to cook and I'll get very upset because it doesn't get presented edible-pretty on my plate. So, more often than not, I play it safe to steam em' fish which can get a tad boring without some variety in my cooking style.
Since having acquired a new kitchen appliance - the Philips Jamie Oliver food processor - I raked my brains to try new recipes that would optimize the use of this product. Spending lesser time in the kitchen sounds very ideal to me and the food processor is meant to help me do just that - speed up my cooking time!
Salmon Patties Recipe
After a brief run through over several recipes online, I decided to adapt and improvise by using my own ingredients from home.
And here's the best part, I decided to experiment and plonk EVERYTHING into the food processor!
Yeah! Just like that! *plonk!*
Once your frying pan is heated up with some oil, scoop the mixture with a table spoon and compress them well before placing into the pan. As the mixture may be a little watery from the vegetables, do be mindful to drain it out before placing the patty into the pan. Otherwise, the patties may not stick well together and will break apart when flipping them over.
Pan fry about 2-3 minutes on each side or till golden brown.
The patties came out crisp on the outside and moist on the inside. It is best served when hot and I am pretty sure it will go very well with tartar sauce - which I didn't have. It was the first time I tried mincing raw potatoes into the mixture together. Traditionally, I would have boiled them down and mashed it up if I didn't have the food processor. The potatoes were cooked pretty quickly, just like in a rosti dish. There were different flavors that came with every bite - especially from the herbs and parsley that I love in my dishes.
MY VERDICT ON THE PHILIPS JAMIE OLIVER FOOD PROCESSOR
It has indeed lived up to its purpose - speeding up my preparation time! It took me in total, less than 8 minutes to gather my ingredients and have my mixture ready for cooking. It has definitely cut down my time by 70% in the kitchen. Apart from the chopping/mincing function, it slices, makes dough and can also whip up ice cream - which I will share in a future post.
Cooking has been made easier for me now, thanks to Philips!
