Fish Cakes Recipe


400-500g fish
3 medium potatoes, peeled
1 onion, chopped
2 eggs
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
Salt and pepper
1/3 cup plain flour
1 cup breadcrumbs
Oil for shallow frying
Chop potatoes and cook in boiling salted water until tender.  Drain, mash and set aside.
If using fresh fish, skin and pin bone if necessary then cook.  It can be poached (place in a pan of simmering water and cook for 4-5 minutes) or steamed over boiling water.  Once cooked, flake the fish into small pieces.
Combine the mashed potato, fish, onion, parsley and 1 well beaten egg in a large bowl.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  Take a small handful of mixture at a time and shape into patties or ‘cakes’.
In 3 separate bowls place the flour, remaining beaten egg and breadcrumbs.   Dip the patties in the flour, then the egg, then the breadcrumbs shaking off the excess.
Heat 5mm oil in a large frying pan over medium heat.  Once the oil is hot enough, add the patties, being careful not to overcrowd the pan.  Cook for a few minutes on each side until golden brown.  Drain on paper towel.
Serve with some sauces or chutneys and a salad.
Serves 5
