Smoked Fish Patties

Dinner, Plantains Add comments


This recipe is an old Estonian one that I modified.


  • 1-2 smoked fish, cleaned
  • 1 large or 2 medium boiled plantains
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 onion
  • salt, pepper, Monterey steak spices
  • bacon or oil for frying onions and later patties


As you see, one main ingredient is my favorite – plantain. I substituted boiled potatoes and it worked wonderful. Obviously potatoes can be used, if it is more convenient.

You need one large or two small smoked fish, any will do.


Clean fish and peel the plantains. Chop onions small and fry with bacon or in oil until soft and golden. Let cool. While onion is cooling, grind the fish and plantains. I use old fashion meat chopper for that purpose, but I am sure food processor works as well. Mix all the ingredients together and add spices to taste. Form small patties and fry in oil 2-3 mins per side. Serve with smashed plantains, or Ratatouille, or any other favorite vegetable side dish.
