Soft and easy to cut, yet firm enough to pierce, fishcakes are ideal for knife and fork practice


  • 400g potatoes, diced
  • 15g unsalted butter
  • Grated zest of ¼ lemon
  • Handful of chopped fresh parsley
  • 200g haddock fillets, bones removed
  • 300ml whole milk
  • Flour, for dusting
  • ½ tbsp olive oil
  • Cooked peas, to serve


  1. Place the potatoes in a pan of water and bring to the boil. Cook for 10 mins. Drain, mash and mix with the butter, zest and parsley.

  2. Meanwhile, place the fish and milk in a shallow frying pan. Cover and simmer for 6-8 mins until beginning to flake. Remove, drain and flake into pieces.

  3. Stir the fish through the mashed potato and pat into 8 flattened balls. Dust with flour and set aside.

  4. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and cook the fishcakes for 5 mins each side, until golden. Serve with freshly cooked peas.
