My fish cake recipe is short, simple and sassy! It need not a whizz kid in the kitchen or endless faffing around, with gadgets, to gather a few ingredients and execute a mouthwatering snack or main meal.

  • Large handful of medium sized prawns
  • half cup of flaked salmon (or any other fish you may have)
  • 1 tea spoon Oregano
  • 1 tea spoon Italian Mixed Herb
  • 1/4 cup of Chopped Onions
  • 2 table spoons Maggi Cubes
  • 1/2 Egg
  • Flour
  • 1/2 tea spoon salt and pepper (chillies optional for heat)


  1. Cut the prawns into small pieces and then, using a metal folk, press them until mushy and add the fish (or blitz in a food processor).

  2. Then added chopped onions, chili and herbs (oregano, Italian mixed herb), maggi liquid...basically your usual cupboard condiments.

  3. Combine half of whisked egg and mix everything together. Then roll the mixture and pat into flat cakes (large handful prawns will allow 4 cakes).

  4. sprinkle a few flour over the mix and cover with cling film and leave in the fridge for at least an hour (or more if possible) to set.

  5. Once out of the fridge, sprinkle a few more flour then fry in oil. Then serve!!!
