  1. Heat the oven to 200C/ 180 fan/ gas 6. Wrap the potato in foil, place on a baking tray and roast in the oven for 1 hour 15 mins. Wrap the fish in foil, put on the same tray and continue cooking for around 10- 12 mins until opaque and cooked through.

  2. Once cooked, halve the potato and scoop out the filling. Flake the fish, removing any bones and discarding the skin.

  3. Grease a baking tray with a little oil. Mash the potato, then mix through the flaked fish, veg, chives, cheese and egg. Allow to cool a little, then take golf-ball sized dollops of mixture and form into little croquette shapes. Arrange on a foil-lined tray and chill in the fridge for 30 mins. If freezing, put the tray in the freezer instead. Once frozen, transfer to a freezer bag and take them out when needed. Thoroughly defrost in the fridge before cooking.

  4. To cook, heat the oven to 200C/ 180 fan/ gas 6. Arrange as many as you need on a baking tray and cook for around 15 mins or until golden and cooked through. The inside will be very hot so make sure it's sufficiently cooled before serving to your little one.

We love these in our 4 year old calls them sea gherkins (maybe because of their shape?!) and helps make them! I used 4 big jacket spuds, 1 egg, 1 pack smoked mackerel, chives, spring onions, peas. Oiled hands for rolling and they take 30mins for ours to get crisp enough on the outside. Great with tomatoes, corn on the cob and green beans. Even the 10month old ate one!

I made these with rainbow trout, not sure I put enough cheese in as they only stayed together when they cooled and I forgot to oil the foil so they stuck a bit but my one year old enjoyed them and my fussy 3 year old actually ate them so it was all good!

Easy to make and very tasty. The baby enjoyed them and my highly suspicious 3yr old wolfed them down too.

My 8 month old daughter loved these because she could pick them up and eat them herself. I used tuna instead of salmon, but will try these with salmon at some point. I even had a few for my tea, they were really tasty.
