After watching Eat The Week – a great new show on Channel 4 where TV chef, Simon Rimmer demonstrates how easy it is to prepare delicious family meals with Iceland’s frozen favourites – mum-of-six, Leanne fancied trying her hand at making some yummy fish cakes.
She enlisted the help of her children to prepare the meal and not only did they love getting involved, they were also far more keen to eat the food, too! Plus, between them, they made enough fish cakes to freeze another batch for a later date – bonus!
Instead of using haddock in her recipe, Leanne opted for salmon, as she knew the kids will love the taste and colour and that wasn’t the only ingredient she swapped; instead of a side portion of slaw, she served her salmon fish cakes with purple potato chips – made from naturally purple Bergerac potatoes – and a side of green peas.
See how Leanne got on in the kitchen and what her family thought of the tasty new fish dish!
How to make fish cakes Leanne style!
Leanne has a large family to feed so doubles the following recipe:
250g potatoes – cooked, drained and mashed
125g raw potato – grated and squeezed
Iceland frozen chopped parsley
350g Iceland frozen wild pink salmon – cooked, flaked and cooled
1 tsp salt
2 eggs – beaten
100g natural breadcrumbs
Oil for frying
Mix the mash, salmon, parsley and salt together. Then mould into 100g ‘cakes’ and chill for 20 minutes.
Roll in flour then into the beaten egg, then the breadcrumbs. Shallow fry for 3-4 minutes.
Serve a fish cake with the two types of fries and peas on the side.
