.

Ingredients – to make 4-6 cakes

Start to finish roughly 1 hour (including 30 minutes resting time in the fridge)

.

Please note that all ingredients are rough proportions and you can play with them depending on your balance.

.

200g Potatoes

500g White Fish (or whichever fish you prefer – this recipe will work with Mackerel etc too)

1 Chilli or to taste

3 spring onions (green parts only)

 2cm Ginger root

1-4 Cloves of Garlic

1 Large Egg

2 Tbsp Lime Juice

some Coconut oil to fry with

Your chosen side(s)

.

The Method

  • Depending on the size of your potatoes either place them whole or chopped into water to boil.  If you have a steamer, steam the fish above the potatoes or you can oven cook them.  Leave them both to cook until ready – about ten minutes.
  • Whilst you wait for the potatoes and fish chop the chilli, spring onions, ginger and garlic finely and set into a bowl.
  • Once the potatoes are cooked, drain them and mash them.  Add in the egg, chilli, spring onions, ginger and garlic and put to one side.
  • Pour the lime juice over the fish and let it marinate for a couple of minutes before adding this to the potato mixture.
  • Make your fish cakes to the size you prefer and place onto a clean plate.  Put them into the fridge to firm up a little for about 30 minutes.
  • Just before your fish cakes are ready to cook, heat some oil in a pan and heat on a medium/low heat until they are cooked though – about three minutes each side depending on how thick your fish cakes are.
  • Serve with your side(s)

NB It took me ages to get a picture as good as I have… fish cakes are about as good looking in a photo as me ;0)
