If you are a fan of fish cakes, then this recipe is a must-try! Sardines are a great source of omega 3 fat and for those who are pregnant, or you just want to limit the amount of mercury this is a good choice. Omega 3 fat is essential for a healthy brain and heart but also is an anti-inflammatory fat meaning it may assist with inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. Sardines are also a good source of B12 needed for a healthy central nervous system and to allow red blood cells to be made. Also, vitamin D for optimal immune function as well as being vital in allowing calcium to be absorbed properly in your body.
The free-range egg will add additional B12 and vitamin D to your body. The yolk also contains vitamin A which helps your immune system stay strong and also plays a role in keeping your vision sharp. Eggs, like sardines, are a good source of protein which adds to the fullness factor of the meal. Protein is an essential macronutrient for your body to build and repair cells. Eggs are a source of biotin which plays a role in keeping your skin, hair, and nails strong and healthy.
Onions will support your immune system function with their antioxidant quercetin. The chickpea flower will add some fibre for fullness and gut health and provide some additional protein. Chilli and coriander are delicious additions to this meal and add their own antioxidants to help fight off free radicals which can damage and age your cells. Chilli adds an additional bonus of speeding up your metabolism for a short period of time. This fish cakes recipe is a must-try!
