- Cook the diced potatoes in a large pan of boiling water for 12-15 minutes, until tender.

- Drain the diced potatoes well and return to the pan. Add the mint jelly and some salt and pepper and mash together. Remove the fish from the pan and drain it well, discarding the milk. Flake the fish into the potatoes. Add the mushy peas and stir together. Shape and the mixture into four firm, even sized cakes.
