Fish Cakes & Pesto

Here are two Whole30-compliant recipes, which are easy and delicious!

Homemade Pesto

The first one is pesto, which you probably already know and love – just like me! The problem with regular pesto is the parmesan cheese, therefore I make my own during my Whole30 month.



  • Olive oil
  • Basil leaves (about 2 handful)
  • Pine nuts (about 1-2 dl)
  • Lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
  • Salt and pepper


  • Blend the pine nuts, basil leaves, and olive oil in a blender or immersion blender
  • Add lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste
  • Keep in the fridge

Fish Cakes

The next recipe is great for a delicious lunch or dinner.

Ingredients for two persons:

  • Two salmon fillets
  • Two large potatoes
  • One onion
  • One egg
  • Fresh parsley and dill
  • Lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Clarified butter or coconut oil


  • Tear the salmon into pieces and put it in a bowl
  • Grate the potatoes and press the excess water out of them
  • Grate the onion and add it and the potato to the salmon
  • Add the whole egg and mix
  • Pick the leaves from the parsley and dill and add it to the mix along with the lemon juice, salt and pepper and mix well
  • Put some clarified butter or coconut oil in circles on a piece of baking paper and put it on a baking sheet
  • Form the ‘dough’ in circles on top of the butter or oil and bake the cakes for about 20 minutes at 200 degrees C
