How to Stock Your Freezer with Salmon or Cod Cakes Posted on 01 Dec 00:00

It's that time of year again: we're attending holiday parties left and right and in our kitchens more than ever. As much as we love spending time with our friends and family and enjoying amazing food together, all the cooking and hosting can get to be a lot.

But you know what? We've got your back! Our favorite tip for staying ahead of the game is to batch prep fish cakes. Before you host or head out to a party, pull them from the freezer and pan fry. That's it! 20 minutes of your time and no decision fatigue after 45 minutes of searching Pinterest.

Here's how it works:

  1. Prepare your favorite fish cakes according to the directions, but don't cook them. We recommend our Sweet Potato Salmon Cakes or our Chipotle and Lime Cod Cakes.
  2. Cut pieces of parchment paper into squares a little bigger than the cakes. Lay down a square of parchment paper and place a raw salmon cake on top. Repeat with all cakes, starting new stacks once you've stacked 5 cakes.
  3. Slide the stacks into freezer safe zipper top bags and pop into the freezer!
  4. When you're ready to cook them, heat a tablespoon of your oil of choice in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Pull the cakes from the freezer and cook for about 5 minutes on each side with the skillet partially covered.

That's it! Your future self is going to thank you for making these cakes!
