I used salmon when I made them, but you can use any cooked fish, like cod or haddock for example or if you're brave enough, use 2 types of fish - but keep to the amount as shown in the recipe. Needless to say, these will be on our dinner menu very soon.

·salt and pepper
1 lbcooked fish - flaked

How to Make Fish Cakes
- Cream the potatoes with the 1 oz margarine & season well. Add the cooked flaked fish & the chopped parsley to the potatoes & mix. Turn out on to a floured board.
- Rub flour into your hands & divide the mixture into twelve equal portions, then form each portion into a flat cake.
Dip each cake in the beaten egg & milk mixture & coat with the brown breadcrumbs.
- For Frying:
Heat half the margarine in a large frying pan until hot. Add 6 of the Fish Cakes & fry over a moderate heat for 3 - 4 minutes on each sides, until nicely brown. Place onto kitchen paper to drain & keep in a warm place until the others are ready. Wipe out the pan, add the remaining 2 oz margarine & repeat for the remaining 6 Fish Cakes. Drain on kitchen paper & serve.
