Mise en place

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas 6.


  1. Boil the Purple Majesty potatoes until soft for 10-12 minutes. Drain but keep the potato water.
  2. Meanwhile, put the fish in a pan with a little water, season with black pepper and simmer gently for 4-5 minutes.
  3. Gently lift the fish out and put onto a plate.
  4. Flake the fish, taking out any large bones.
  5. Now mash the potatoes, and break in the egg, mashing together.
  6. Add the flaked fish, the peas and a little of the potato water then combine together and shape into six fishcakes.
  7. Use as much or as little of the potato water as you need to get the right dry, yet stick-together consistency.
  8. Press each of the fishcakes into a flat dish containing the wholemeal breadcrumbs and coat evenly all over.
  9. These fishcakes can now rest in the fridge until you are ready to cook them.
  10. When you are ready to cook, simply place on a baking tray, drizzle with a little olive oil and bake for 25-30 minutes, turning over half way through.
