Smoked Cod Fish Cakes

Saucy Fish - Cod Fish Cakes

If you caught our review of Saucy Fish back in June you’ll know we’re big fans of their fish and matched sauces – we recently picked up a mini recipe book with our fish and this is one of the included recipes. Saucy Fish have been kind enough to let me share it with you!

Serves 2

  • 1 pack of Saucy Fish smoked cod
  • 200g of mashed potato, seasoned
  • 2 teaspoons of wholegrain mustard
  • 50g of white cheddar, grated
  • 3 tablespoons of chives, chopped
  • 50g seasoned flour
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 100g of breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons of crème fraiche
  • Oil for frying

Cook the smoked cod as instructed on pack. When cooled, remove the skin and any bones, and then flake the fish.

In a bowl, mix the fish, mashed potato, cheese, half the mustard and chives. Beat 1 egg and add to the mix to bind. Split the mix into 6 equal portions and mould into round fishcakes with your hands. Place on a plate and leave in the fridge to firm up.

When fish cakes are firm cover in seasoned flour, dip into the egg, gently shake to remove excess and place one at a time onto a bed of breadcrumbs to cover the base, scooping the breadcrumbs up over the top and pressing them firmly onto the fishcakes to cover the gaps.

In a large frying pan cover the base with oil. Fry over a medium heat for 10 minutes, turning half way through.

Lay the fishcakes on kitchen paper to drain and make the delicious sauce by simply mixing the remaining mustard with the crème fraiche.
