Lightly Spiced Fish Cakes

I made these fish cakes recently pretty easy to put together and I loved the spices added. I love fish cakes as the flavor combinations are endless. Also you could add any fish, I used sole, but cod, salmon, haddock whatever is on special would work well. 


  • 1/4 teaspoon of cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika 
  • 1/4 teaspoon of coriander
  • a small bunch of finely chopped parsley
  • a pinch of turmeric 
  • 2 cups of mashed potatoes 
  • 1/2 cup of panko
  • 4 filets of sole lightly poached in one tablespoon of butter
  • salt to taste

  1. boil and mash the potatoes, add a little milk and butter and keep to one side
  2. lightly poach the fish and use a fork to make it into flakes
  3. add the herbs and spices to a bowl then add the mashed potato and fish 
  4. form into patties and coat in panko
  5. lightly pan fry in olive oil for about 3 minutes on each side until lightly browned
  6. enjoy with a little fresh lime juice 
  7. they can be eaten with salad, cous cous, rice or as a starter 

Have a wonderful start to the week everyone, I love this time of year as the daffodils and snow drops start to bloom here are a few snaps from morning walks:-)

  1. Wow, it's already spring in your neck of the woods! Here, it is still quite wintry looking...

    Lovely fish cakes!



    1. thanks and yep it looked chilly on your walk photo series

  2. We also have snowdrops and crocuses out but the daffodils are way behind. These fish cakes sound wonderful. Have a great week. Diane

  3. This testifies to the wonderful versatility of the potato and the white and light-textured fish.

  4. I could eat these fish cakes every day and be happy. Love your daffodils. One of the downsides of spending the winter down south is that we miss seeing our daffodils and tulips.

  5. Just bought some sole - I'll be back :)
