If you are a fan of fish cakes, then make sure you save this recipe. Safcol provides quality fish, and salmon is a great source of omega-3 fat. This fat supports a healthy brain and heart as well as being an anti-inflammatory fat. Salmon is also a good source of iodine needed for healthy metabolic function. Iodine is also needed to make blood cells, nerve and muscle cells, temperature regulation and reproduction and growth.

All the included vegetables will help your gut work at its best because they are good sources of fibre. Zucchinis give your body vitamin C which is needed to make the protein collagen. Vitamin C also is needed whenever your body makes cortisol, needed for thyroid function. Vitamin C is needed daily as your body cannot make its own vitamin C.

Sweet potatoes are a good source of vitamin A which is needed to keep your eyes working well and supports a healthy immune system function. Onions contain the antioxidant quercetin which also helps your immune system work well.

Like salmon, eggs are a fantastic source of vitamin D. This vitamin is needed to allow calcium to be absorbed properly in your body. Eggs and salmon also contain all the essential amino acids your body needs to make protein in your body. Both eggs (which include the yolk) and salmon provide your body with iron. This mineral allows oxygen to be transported around your body and supports your immune function.

½ cup of coconut flour provides 6g of protein, 4g of fibre and is a good source of plant-based iron. These salmon cakes are not only delicious but also nutritious!
