As the Philips AirFryer uses very little oil if any in many recipes (including these fish cakes) you can cut the calories without compromising on taste.
I must say I think the AirFryer is a most marvelous invention. Yep I'm really loving this gadget as it can cook many things other low fat fryers can not cook and I'll be writing a detailed post on that soon.
So far in the #AirFryerTakeIn challenge I've cooked Ricotta and Basil Balls and Mini Chorizo Empanadas and both were totally delicious.
These Thai Fishcakes are just 57 calories per Fishcake with Mango Salsa and Philips say a takeaway version (on average) would be 70 calories.
So how does the AirFryer work?
By using very little oil and something called Rapid Air Technology. Rapid Air technology makes the hot air circulate very rapidly around the ingredients in the basket. This heats up the ingredients in the basket from all sides at once, making it a healthy, fast and easy method to prepare tasty food. Food prepared in the Airfryer is crispy on the outside and without being dry on the inside.
Now I'm just saying, from my personal experience I say the non-stick Philips Grill Pan that isn't supplied with the AirFryer is seriously worth buying as my fishcakes did stick to the bottom of the supplied wire basket but the grill pan is non-stick and works perfectly. Of course it's also useful for cooking many other food items too.
There was no oil used to make these fishcake - the recipe is in the book that is supplied with the Philips Viva Collection AirFryer along with a good selection of other recipes that include a chocolate cake. Oh yes CAKE made in the AirFryer!!
