Once the preserve of dodgy chippies, fish cakes are now smart dinner party fodder.
"Delicious albeit slightly time consuming. I thought it would be too much dried dill, but decided to stick to the recipe regardless. Turns out it wasn't too much dill. "
Put the onion in a large frying pan, sit the fish on top and pour the wine or stock over. Bring to a gentle simmer, cover and cook the fish for 6-8 minutes or until cooked through. Remove and cool. Strain out the onion and mix into the mashed potato with the herbs.
Flake in the fish in decent-sized chunks and season. Gently mix everything and, using floured hands, shape into 8 cakes. Lightly dust with flour, dip in egg and then in breadcrumbs. Chill for at least 30 minutes (important or they will come apart in the pan).
Heat 1cm oil in a large frying pan. Fry the fish cakes in batches for 3-4 minutes each side or until they are golden, crisp and heated through. Drain on kitchen paper.
Serve hot with a green-leaf salad, some Tartar sauce and a wedge of lemon.

cgill7 2y agoIt was ok.. time consuming and since I don't do metrics even more so since I had to convert. Probably won't make again.
