Method

  1. Cook the potatoes in boiling, salted water until tender, adding the peas for the final 5 mins. Meanwhile, put the fish in a microwaveable dish, dot with butter, cover with cling film, then microwave on High for 3-4 mins until tender.
  2. Drain the potatoes and peas, then return to the pan and mash well. Skin and flake the fish, then add to the mash and season. Shape into 8 cakes with floured hands and lightly dust with flour.
  3. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, then fry the fish cakes until crisp and golden, turning once. Mix the mayo, lime and chilli, then serve with the fish cakes, lime wedges and salad, if you like.

We loved these fish cakes although do agree that they are quite bland & you definately need to serve them with the chilli mayo.

I added more fish than the recipe asked for, and everything still held together fine. They went down a storm!

I followed the recipe to the letter but found the fish cakes to be rather bland.

I steamed the potatoes and used Vivaldi potatoes as they really dont need butter. crushed rather than mashed. Used a vey little olive oil to fry. Low fat dijon mayo from a trip to France and voila! a fairly low fat meal and delicious too! I also used the Basics trout fillets
