Składniki / Ingredients:

  • 400 gr of fish (cod, haddock, salmon)
  • 3 spring onions (finely chopped)
  • 100 ml milk
  • 450 g potato (peeled, large ones cut in half)
  • 75 g can sweetcorn
  • a handful of grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 large egg (beaten)
  • flour or breadcrumbs for dusting
  • olive oil (for frying)

Sposób wykonania / Instructions:

  • Cook the potatoes in boiling water until just tender. Drain well. Mash the potato with a small knob of butter. Allow cooling.
  • Put the fish, spring onions and milk in a saucepan and gently cook until just opaque and cooked through.
  • Drain the fish and spring onions through a fine sieve. Gently mix with the potatoes, avoiding breaking up the fish too much, along with the sweetcorn, cheddar and a generous grind of black pepper. Form into patties. The cooler the mashed potato is when you do this, the easier it will be to form the patties.
  • Pour the egg on one plate and scatter flour on the other. Dip the patties in egg and then flour or breadcrumbs and arrange on a sheet of baking paper on a tray. Put the patties in the fridge for at least half an hour to firm up if the patties feel very soft
  • Heat a large frying pan with olive oil. When the oil is hot, put the fish cakes into the pan. Cook for 5 – 7 minutes or until golden brown underneath and then carefully flip them over. Fry for another 5 – 7 minutes or until golden on the bottom and heated all the way through.
  • I have used donut mold to make a shape.
