Hello Dear Reader,
Thanks again for the lovely comments.
I made the cheaper than chips fish cakes today and here is how. Firstly boil the kettle and add the required water and milk 550mls into the pan, I add a dash of marg and then swirl in the instant mash 20p from Tesco and beat furiously until smooth, I then add a liberal sprinkle of dried parsley and keep stirring – whilst I was doing this, I microwave two pieces of pollack, which cost £1 for the two from the value range, again from Tesco. Flake with a fork and stir through the mash and parsley. I also add a good wallop of pepper and stir through.
Get a pan on, get it smoking hot and throw in some oil. Gently form the spud and fish mix into cake, roll in flour to make a coating and then gently drop into the oil. Turn the heat down once a crispy skin is formed and cook through.
