ok this is one my daughter has just asked me to post, the quick and easy fishcake, made as exactly we do in the shop!

1 quantity of beer batter ( see previous thread )
(or 1 egg & breadcrumbs for coating and shallow frying whilst on a boat if prefared)
1lb white fish, skinned and boned,large diced .
5lb potatoes, peeled and diced
1 small pkt parsley and thyme stuffing mix
a little flour for shaping.
deep fry pan 1/3rd full or electric fryer, with cooking oil for frying.

put potatoes into a large saucepan, with just enough water to cover and simmer for 10 mins till part cooked, then add the diced raw fish and continue to cook till potatoes are soft. remove from heat, do not drain. add the dry stuffing mix and mash all the ingredients in the pan together well to a stiff consistancy. ( if mixture is a bit too soft adjust by adding a tablespoon of dried potato such as smash)
leave to cool, then put in fridge for a couple of hours till stone cold.
with clean floured hands, scoop about a teacup full of the mixture up, and shape into a patty about an inch thick.
place on a plate, repeat till all mixture is used.
what you dont need to use today can now be frozen on an open tray and later packed into freezer bags when solid.
chill the cakes in the fridge for an hour, make up the beer batter and heat the oil to 170c.
dip the cake into the batter and slowly and carefully lower into the hot oil. fry for 10 mins turning over half way through cooking. drain on kitchen paper, repeat till all required cakes are cooked.
serve with mushy peas and salt and vinegar.

hope a few of you try this recipe, the adding of a packet of bought stuffing mix to fish may seem rather alien to some people, but they are really tasty when made, and in an average week we sell over 150 of them in the shop, the school kids love them, and at 60p each they make a reasonable hot lunch.. better for them than a pot noodle!  

would love to know if anyones tried making them yet  Smile
