      Perfect easy recipe, added dried onions, two chopped carrots and two bay leaves to the potatoes and then added the fish for the last five minutes of cooking (why wash another pan!). Also did not crumb just shallowed fried in a mix of olive oil and butter. Perfect with some salad. Thanks for sharing.

      I was looking for a quirky little fishcakes recipe for a quick valentines day dish when I found this. It is absolutley fantastic, I substituted the chives for a little onion, and the I used three quarters smoked haddock and one quarter white fish and it was just amazing!If you don't have have the exact same ingredients its just fine as I think it gives you a great structure to be able to experiment with and its also an easy recipe to do on a budget. However I really think the egg makes it a real winner so please make sure that is essential;I will definatly use this recipe time and again! Once you try this you will never buy fishcakes from the store again! Thankyou thankyou thankyou! From Ruth M, London, England, UK.
