Nutritional values

One portion covers 180% of the daily requirement of iodine.  Our thyroid gland constantly needs it to produce vital hormones, which then reach all cells of the body with the blood.

If you follow the low-carb diet, these fish cakes are just right for you; they are especially suitable for dinner. If the dish is to be supplemented with carbohydrates, boiled potatoes are an excellent choice.
