Hake Patties

  • 2 medium white sweet potatoes or 300g or 1 ½ cups mash
  • 4 hake fillets, deboned (400g) roughly chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 C Rice flour
  • 1/4 C fresh parsley roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh chives finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/3 C rice flakes
  • Olive oil / Coconut Oil Spray

Avocado Cream

  • 2 large avocados
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • Freshly Cracked Salt to taste

To serve

  • 2 punnets Cherry Tomatoes washed and halved
  • 3 cobs fresh corn steamed or boiled and corn removed from the cob.


Hake Patties

  • Steam or boil the sweet potatoes until fully cooked. Allow them to cool and then mash them. You should get 1 ½ cups of mash.
  • Preheat the oven to 190C and spray a baking tray with non-stick spray.
  • Add the rice flakes to a bowl and set aside till later.
  • Add the cooled mash along with the rest of the ingredients EXCEPT THE RICE FLAKES to a food processer. Pulse until the mixture comes together in a sticky mixture and the ingredients (especially the hake) are broken down and combined.
  • Using a ¼ C measurement, scoop the mixture and shape into balls. Then flatten out into patties. Set aside until you’ve shaped them all.
  • Once they’ve been shaped, dip each patty into the rice flake to coat both sides. As the mixture is sticky, the flakes will stick to it.
  • Place the crumbed patties on the prepared baking tray and spray with coconut oil / olive oil spray. Bake for 20 minutes. Flip the patties over and bake for another 10 minutes on the other side.
  • If you’re not serving them immediately, remove and let them cool on a wire rack. This helps keep both the top and bottom crispy and prevents any sogginess from the steam.

Avocado Cream

  • Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Season to taste.

To Serve

  • Dollop the avocado cream onto a plate, top with hake patties, cherry tomatoes and corn.
