450gFish (Saints love Tuna, but works with any Fish)
1Onion (Large, Chopped)
2Rashers of Bacon (Finely Chopped)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Wash fish. Shred or mince fish with a knife until very fine.
Peel, dice and boil potatoes. Then mash them.
Heat oil and fry onion, bacon and chill until onion starts to brown. Remove from heat.
Combine the onion, bacon and chill with the potatoes.
Add the fish to the mixture while potatoes are still hot and mix it together. Then mix in the beaten egg, and season with Salt and Pepper.
Form patties with your hands (about 5 cm in diameter), flatten slightly and dust with flour if necessary. Tip 1: Wash hands regularly to prevent the mixture from sticking to your hands when forming patties. Tip 2: Uncooked patties can be frozen for frying later. Defrost patties completely before frying.
Fry patties in hot oil until both sides are golden brown.
Serve as a main meal with rice and vegetables, or as a snack in a roll.
Serving suggestion: Saints like their Fishcakes with some Rice and Vegetables with some Onion gravy. Or in a nice crusty roll with some Onions and their favourite sauce.
