I have used this recipe once, a very long time ago & somehow had forgotten about it - I have a terrible memory, so no surprises there - but, after pinching a similar recipe from another website, it brought the memory back. The Fish Cakes were fairly easy to do & the recipe easy to follow. They tasted pretty good too.
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.

How to Make Fish Cakes


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
