Seafood Eggs Benedict

We had left over fish cakes from last night that we didn't cook yet, and decided to make them for brunch today with a benedict.  It turned out perfectly!  The only thing we thought would have been better was some sauteed kale or swiss chard to help cut some of the fat.  Next time we'll try that and post photos!

My delicious brunch this morning!

Hollandaise Ingredients:
2 Egg Yolks (Tropical Traditions Organic - Soy Free - Omega 3 Pastured Eggs)
1/2c (estimated) Extra Virgin Olive Oil  (Kotino's Olive Oil)
1 Garlic Clove
1T Water
1T Fresh Lemon Juice
1/4t Italian Seasonings
Sea Salt & Black Pepper to Taste

Serves 3-4

Directions for Hollandaise:
  • Add egg yolks, water, lemon juice, garlic, sea salt, pepper & italian seasonings into Vitamix on 5-7 speed(medium speed) for about 20 seconds blended together
  • Add olive oil until desired consistency - we think it was close to a 1/2c
  • Set aside until ready to serve

Ingredients for Trio Fish Cakes:
2- 6oz Wild Alaskan Pink Salmon Boneless/Skinless No Salt (we had 2 cans of Trader Joe brand on hand) but another favorite brand of mine is Vital Choice

1/2-1t Lemon Pepper
1/4t Chili Powder
1/4t Ground Coriander
1-2T Bacon Lard (Coconut Oil or Grass Fed Butter would work too)

Directions for Trio Fish Cakes:
  • Drain tuna & salmon and put into medium mixing bowl
  • Drain sardines, mash add into tuna & salmon mixture
