Fish Cakes

I love fish cakes and I always use salmon for mine but you can use tuna if you want to save a little money on them. When I was a little girl I can always remember being allowed to mash the potatoes up for mum when she was making them for us. They are easy to make and so very tasty that you will love having them, especially during the summer as they go down well with a tossed salad and a glass of chilled white wine.


1 large tin of salmon or tuna
1 small to medium size onion
1 large egg
2 large potatoes
fresh parsley - chopped
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
sea salt and black pepper to taste
approx 1 tablespoon lemon juice
extra breadcrumbs
Peanut or olive oil for shallow frying


Boil potatoes and then mash them and allow to cool slightly. Chop onion up finely. In large bowl add all ingredients and mix through with your hands as this really combines the ingredients well.
Shape into patties, dip in extra breadcrumbs and fry in large frypan or wok until browned on one side then turn over and cook the other side. They should only take several minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels and serve either hot or cold. I serve with a lemon wedge and a small bowl of tartre sauce on the table for those who want it.
