  • Roasted Red Pepper Sauce
  • ¼ cup roasted peppers, jarred
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½ teaspoon sweet paprika
  • ¼ cup light mayonnaise
  • Fish Cakes
  • 1 pound fish fillets, such as flounder, tilapia, cod, halibut, salmon or use canned crab
  • 1¼ cup seasoned panko, gluten-free if needed, divided*
  • ¼ cup minced celery
  • 2 tablespoons light mayo
  • ½ tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1½ tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 large eggs, divided
  • ¼ cup finely chopped parsley
  • 3 scallions, green tops minced plus more for garnish
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • black pepper, to taste
  • olive oil spray
  • lemon wedges, for serving
  1. Puree the roasted peppers, garlic and paprika in a mini blender and combine with the mayo, set aside.
  2. Air Fryer Method:
  3. Place the fish in the air fryer basket and cook 400F 6 minutes until cooked though and easily flakes with a fork. Transfer to a large bowl, let cool and flake into small pieces. Wipe basket clean.
  4. Add fish to a large bowl with ½ cup panko, celery, mayo, dijon, lemon juice, 1 of the eggs, parsley, scallion, Old Bay, salt and black pepper. Stir well until combined.
  5. Divide into 8 portions, about ¼ cup each and form into patties. If they fall apart add a little more panko.
  6. Place the remaining egg in a bowl and whisk. Gently dip the patties in the egg, then coat with the remaining panko and pat off any excess. Spray both sides with olive oil.
  7. Air fry the patties in an even layer 400F 8 minutes turning halfway, in batches as needed until golden brown and crisp. Serve with lemon wedges and red pepper sauce.
  8. Oven Method:
  9. Bake the fish in a pre-heated 425F oven in a 9 x 12 baking dish until it flakes easily with a fork, about 10 minutes.
  10. Once the patties are formed, spray with olive oil and bake them in the oven until crisp, about 5 to 6 minutes on each side.
