Homemade fish cakes are quite delicious. Serve with lemon wedges and parsley butter.
Servings: 4 cakes
Calories: 173


  • 1/2 lb filleted white or smoked fish cooked, skinned and flaked
  • 1/2 lb potatoes boiled and mashed
  • 1 tsp spoon lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp freshly chopped parsley
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp milk if necessary
  • Vegetable oil for frying

to coat:

  • 1 egg beaten
  • 2 oz dried breadcrumbs


  • In a mixing bowl combine the fish, potatoes, lemon juice, parsley and seasoning to taste, binding the mixture with the milk if too dry. On a floured board, shape the mixture into four cakes.
  • Dip the cakes into the beaten egg, ensuring that they are evenly coated, then coat in the breadcrumbs.
  • Heat the oil gently in a deep-fat fryer until it is hot enough to turn a stale bread cube golden in 20 to 30 seconds (180 - 190°C (350 - 375°F) on a deep-frying thermometer).
  • Lower the cakes, two at a time, into the hot oil, increase the heat and fry until golden-brown on all sides. Drain on absorbent kitchen paper and serve immediately.
  • The fish cakes may also be shallow fried in equal quantities of butter and oil for 5 to 7 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
