    Thanks!!!

    My DS had two LAX games tonight followed by a party with HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS!!! He scored 8 times in the game and hopefully ZERO at the party! :)

    Fish Cakes




    My starting ingredients:

    [​IMG]





    For fish cake:

    • White Fish, 500 g
    • Potatoes, 400 g – boiled for about 20 minutes
    • Onion, 1 – finely diced
    • Carrot, 1 – finely diced
    • Dill, 1 bunch – diced
    • Butter, about 1 tablespoon
    • Salt and Pepper to taste
    • Oil


    Fish cake coating/breading:

    • Flour, seasoned with turmeric, paprika, salt and pepper
    • Egg, 1
    • Breadcrumbs



    Gently fry the onion in a pan. You’ll note that I used a pot.

    [​IMG]




    After 1 – 2 minutes, add the carrot and cook for a further 2 minutes.

    [​IMG]




    Transfer the vegetables to a bowl with the potatoes.

    [​IMG]




    Season with salt, pepper and the butter. Mix the vegetables together. I used a fork so that I would have lumpy potato bits.

    [​IMG]




    Because I’m a fairly lazy cook, I used the same pot that I used to fry the veg in for this next step.
    Add about ½ cup water to the pot and place the fish inside.

    [​IMG]




    Gently poach on a low simmer for about 3 – 4 minutes, or until the fish is just cooked.

    [​IMG]




    Flake the poached fish into the vegetable mix.

    [​IMG]




    Chop the dill finely….

    [​IMG]





    …and add to the mix. Combine all ingredients and refrigerate for about 2 hours.

    [​IMG]




    Form equal sized balls from the mixture. I made about 9.

    [​IMG]




    Mix the flour with the paprika, turmeric, salt and pepper. You could add any spice you like (or none at all); but these were what I reached for in my pantry.

    [​IMG]




    Flatten each ball to form a pattie and coat with the flour.

    [​IMG]




    Dip in the beaten egg….

    [​IMG]




    …and then coat with the breadcrumbs.

    [​IMG]




    Continue coating until finished.

    [​IMG]





    Heat some oil in a pan on low/medium heat.

    [​IMG]





    Fry for about 2 – 3 minutes on each side.

    [​IMG]





    I was serving these with some oven wedges; so I placed the fish cakes in the oven to keep warm. The breading turned out softer than I wanted. Next time, I will cook on low heat on the stove for about 4 - 5 minutes on each side.

    [​IMG]





    My dinner! Served with sweet chilli sauce.

    [​IMG]





    NOTE: The fish cake mix was a little soft for my liking. Next time, I’m going to add ½ - 1 cup of breadcrumbs to the mix before coating it. It might firm up the pattie somewhat.

    PIO the fish cakes look awesome..... I have no made fish cakes in a very long time. We make Crab Cakes often, but we have some great seafood options here being here on the bay, but we seem to just grill it alot.
