Nutritional information (per fish cake)

230 kcal

Since first trying them, we've fallen in love with Lo-Dough fishcakes. Rather than using the traditional high in carbohydrate mashed potato to bind the fish, we use our blitzed down Lo-Dough crumbs, a beaten egg and spoon of quark, alongside simple tinned salmon (fresh would work well too) and the result is fantastic. 

Amazingly, it works out at just 2.2g carbs for a substantial salmon fish cake (see image).

At 230 calories and 28g of protein, this is a great recipe if you're slimming or working out - you can even add hollandaise (or mayo) to push it in a keto-direction. In fact, given the low calorie count of the fishcake itself, we'd just add the hollandaise anyway - that's the point of Lo-Dough - you can treat yourself! 

Thousands of Lo-Dough users swear by our nutritional, low calorie alternative meals. Whether you are slimming or focused on your fitness and nutrition, using Lo-Dough can be a real game changer.
