Vickys Sweet Potato, Mixed-Fish, Fish Cakes GF DF EF SF NF

I like to swap out some white potato for sweet potato for their better nutrients and using white fish, smoked fish and salmon is a treat to eat instead of plain white fish

    Cut the white potato into even sized chunks and cut the sweet potato into chinks double the size of the white potato ie quarter the white and halve the sweet

    Put into a saucepan, cover with cold lightly salted water, bring to the boil and cook for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender

  3. Change

    Drain then let the potatoes rest on the warm hob for a few minutes to let any remaining water evaporate before mashing with a tablespoon of margarine or butter

  4. Change

    Meanwhile, add the fish chunks, onion and milk to another pan. Bring to a simmer then put the lid on the pan and take off the heat. Let stand like this for 5 minutes until the fish is opaque and cooked through

    Drain the milk off then add the fish and onion to the potato pan with the sweetcorn and parsley

  6. Change

    Mix through gently as to not break the fish up too much

  7. Change

    Let the mixture cool then form into 8 equal patties - make into balls first then squash them down a little so they're around an inch thick

    Spray the baking sheet with oil and place the fishcakes back on it

  13. Add Photo

    Spray the fishcakes with oil and bake for 10 minutes on each side until the crumb is golden and the insides are heated through

  14. Change

    At the point of breading the fishcakes you can then freeze them for later use. They'll be fine in the freezer for up to 3 months. Defrost before baking as previously instructed above. Recipe serves 4 adult portions or 8 childrens portions
