For those who need to cook something in a hurry, and from the products in the house there are no truffles, no granular caviar, no marbled beef. We offer a recipe for quick budget cutlets from canned fish.
I fished him out of my mom's recipe book, apparently stayed there from those very times when I managed to cook a decent dish out of nothing. These cutlets are good with any side dish: porridge or vegetables. Even without a side dish, with the simplest sauce, they taste good. So, a dish with a touch of nostalgia - canned fish cutlets.
Canned fish - 1 bank;
Potatoes - 1 tuber;
Onions - 1 piece;
Chicken eggs - 2 pcs .;
Semolina - 6 tbsp. l .;
Salt, pepper - to taste;
Vegetable oil for frying.
First of all, let's take the vegetable component of cutlets. Onions clean and chop onions. My potatoes, clean and three on a fine grater. In principle, for this recipe, you can take other vegetables, for example, zucchini or a piece of pumpkin - vegetables that do not stand out with their flavor in stuffing - also work. If you have a couple of boiled potatoes left from dinner, you can safely replace the raw potatoes, but in this case you will need to take less.
Combine all ingredients together. We break the eggs, pour the semolina, pour the liquid from the canned food, but do not pour it out, and knead the fish itself with a fork. Add the prepared vegetables. Salt and pepper.
All the ingredients are mixed. We give mince for cutlets to stand for 15-20 minutes in order for the semolina to swell. In principle, there should be enough eggs and potato juice, but if it seems to you that the stuffing is a little dry, add a couple of tablespoons of fish liquid.
Fry fish cakes, like any other: until golden brown crust. Any vegetable oil you choose is suitable for frying. Since all the ingredients are prepared very quickly, and the main component - canned fish in oil - is ready to be consumed at all, 2-3 minutes and each side will be quite enough for the meatballs to roast. Put the ready-made crispy cutlets on a paper towel first - this will remove excess fat.
That's it! Put a plate of meatballs on the table, chop vegetables for a salad, arrange the side dish on plates and invite the family to eat. Mayonnaise, tartar sauce, ketchup or adjika are welcome! Canned fish cutlets are ready. Bon appetit to all!
