100% AUSTRALIAN HEALTHY FISHCAKES

The concept of Bondi Seafood Company stems from a secret family recipe of co-founder Dan Kennedy. The “Original Fishcake” recipe was passed from generation to generation, dating back to his late Great Grand Mother. Then, after over 20 years in the fishing tackle business, Dan had a thought that he should introduce these healthy fishcakes to the world. And so, Bondi Seafood Company was born. But the glue that holds Bondi Seafood Company together with our suppliers and distributors is our shared values of ethically caught fish, 100% Australian produce and family.

ETHICALLY CAUGHT FISH

We celebrate sustainable, wild-caught Australian fish and work closely with our suppliers to ensure that their practices remain ethical. We believe that our fresh seafood should have complete transparency, right back to the boat that caught the fish. And that’s precisely what we deliver. You can trace back our Blue Grenadier Australian fish used in our healthy fishcakes right back to the boat it was caught from here.

The Australian Fisheries Management Authority (AFMA) manage the catchment of Blue Grenadier. AFMA enforce restrictions based on quota, the quantity of boats fishing, fished areas, and the type and amount of gear used. The AFMA records how many Blue Grenadier fish are being caught through close monitoring of Australian fishermen. In addition, commercial boats are required to record their catches during the fishing venture and again when they port. To avoid over-fishing, the AFMA consider expertise from scientists, researchers, industry members and fisheries managers to restrict the quantity of the species caught annually.

Air Fry
Short on time? We’ve got you covered. Our fishcakes are naturally oily, so if you’re looking for a healthier alternative, they’re also compatible with air fryers. Simply put them on the tray for the air fryer, turn to 180 degrees and air fry for 10 minutes. The air frying method brings out the taste of our nine ingredients, complimenting the rich flavour of the Blue Grenadier.

Deep-Fried
Ready to elevate your Bondi Seafood Company fishcakes? One of the most delicious ways to eat our fishcakes is to deep fry them. Simply drop them a deep fryer and allow them to sit until they are golden and crispy on the outside.

Pan Fry
Heat our healthy fishcakes through in a pan with a light coating of cooking oil. Flip the fishcakes gently to ensure both sides are thoroughly heated through and the outers golden brown. Let them sit for 60 seconds before digging in. Delicious!

Oven Bake
Oven-baked fishcakes are not only delicious, but they’re also super easy to throw in with some veggies for dinner. The natural oiliness of the fishcake will keep everything in the same oven dish moist. Set the oven to 180°C and place the fishcakes on a tray lined with oil or baking paper. Set the fishcakes in the oven for approximately 20 minutes and flip the fishcakes in between. Leave them in longer if the fishcakes are not yet golden – trust us, that perfectly-baked crunch is worth the wait. Now you’ve got healthy fishcakes ready to feed your family!

Sides

We recommend opting for a salad dressed with a balsamic vinaigrette or a creamy Caesar dressing. As a mid-week meal, the easy fishcakes will lift any meal that includes some simple steamed vegetables. If you’re entertaining, some roast or BBQ vegetables will please almost everyone. As a brunch dish, serve our fishcakes with a creamy poached egg on top with wilted spinach and tomato relish.

The Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) is an expert food science organisation that provides an official food safety certification. HACCP Certifications indicate that the food produced by a business meets stringent requirements of food authorities in Australia. The HACCP Certification aims to identify and control hazards likely to occur in food handling operations, audit control methods and provide corrective actions when a hazard falls outside of control. The organisation regularly review food businesses for compliance at least once every 12 months.

The way in which food businesses become certified is by undergoing regular audits by employees of HACCP that have depth and breadth of experience in the food science discipline. Auditors are approved for regulatory audits in NSW to A identify, evaluate and control hazards that are significant for food safety.

The HACCP certification HACCP indicates a high standard of food safety and consists of seven principles. We will provide a brief outline of the seven principles below.

Principle 1: Auditors conduct a hazard analysis.
Principle 2: Auditors identify Critical Control Points (CCPs).
Principle 3: Auditors establish critical limit(s).
Principle 4: Monitor the control of the CCP.
Principle 5: Determine the corrective action in the instance of a particular CCP not in control.
Principle 6: Procedures for verification to confirm that the HACCP system is working are established.
Principle 7: All procedures and records are documented, and a HACCP provided.

We adhere to the HACCP Certification principles and are committed to maintaining the food safety regulations as established by the HACCP auditors.

Not only are our fishcakes safe for the entire family to eat, but they’re also good for you. Our fishcakes and food safety practices are HACCP certified, which means that a leading food science organisation formally recognises us for our successful food safety practices.
