Quick fish cakes

“The best of British meets Indian spice in this tasty breakfast dish – great at any time of day.” So it says at the Jamie Oliver homepage for fish recipes. This is a delicious fish course, healthy and easy to prepare. Just remember to use only top quality fish, you can’t make a feast out of bad raw material.

Ingredients:

500 g skinless cod, haddock or pollock fillets, from sustainable sources

1 large Maris Piper (250g)

4 tablespoons plain flour

olive oil

2 tablespoons mixed fresh green herbs, such as dill, chives or parsley

200 ml mayonnaise , made using free-range eggs

Method:

Roughly chop the fish, then peel and grate the potato.

Combine with the flour in a bowl, then season with sea salt and black pepper.

Bring together with your hands and shape into 12 flat patties, then leave to chill in the fridge.

Heat a glug of oil in a heavy-based pan over a medium-high heat. In batches of 4, cook the fish cakes for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until golden and crisp, then remove to kitchen paper to drain.

Pick, chop and stir the herbs through the mayo, then serve with the fish cakes, and some watercress and lemon wedges, if you like.
