A recipe by Julie Van Rosendaal

Fish Cakes

Total Time:






Skill Level:



  • 250-350 g Cod fillet
  • canola oil, for cooking
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 cup dry breadcrumbs or Panko

How to Make It

Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add a drizzle of oil and cook the fish, sprinkling with salt and pepper, for 3-4 minutes per side, or until just cooked through. Set aside and flake into pieces with a fork.

In a saucepan, cover the potatoes with water, bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes, or until tender. Drain and transfer to a large bowl and mash with a potato masher or fork. Add the egg, green onions, cod and some salt and pepper to taste. Mash with a fork and stir to combine everything well.

Shape the mixture into patties any size you like and dredge in breadcrumbs to coat. Heat a drizzle of oil in the skillet over medium-high heat and cook the patties in batches until they are golden and crisp; 4-5 minutes per side.
