Fishy fish cakes

Fishy fish cakes

Fishy fish cakes. Deliciously rustic, quick and easy to make. We all have some leftover cooked potato from time to time don’t we? Or a few lonely tatties that need to be used up? Well, Tillie has the perfect fishy solution for lonely tatties. Tillie’s fishy fish cakes.

What you need to make Tillie’s Fishy fish cakes …

  • A bowl.
  • A fork and a spoon.
  • Some unseasoned cooked potato – you can use white or sweet potato.
  • Some cooked fish – it can be any fish you like – ย cooked white fish, or salmon, mackerel, sardines or tuna from a tin.
  • An egg.
  • Some peas (optional – peas make Tillie fart but I like them, especially when daddy is home).
  • Some chopped parsley.
  • A tray with baking parchment on it (to save you washing the tray).
  • An oven.

This is a recipe from Tillie’s ‘quick and easy rustic’ range so we don’t dick about with weights and measurements. We just guess.

How to make Tillie’s Fishy fish cakes …

  • Put the unseasoned cooked potato in the bowl and mash it with the fork.
  • Add some fish, the egg, some peas and chopped parsley.
  • Mix it all together with the fork
  • Get a spoonful of the fishy fish cake mixture and blob it onto the tray.
  • Press the blob of fishy fish cake mixture down with the fork to flatten it.
  • Continue spooning, blobbing and flattening until all the fishy fish cake mixture is used up.
  • Lick the bowl clean and put it back in the cupboard.
  • Place the tray(s) of fishy fish cakes in the oven preheated to 180 degrees c and cook until golden brown – about 15 to 20 mins.
  • Leave to cool and then have a little fishy nibble.

The healthy stuff …

Fish is an easily digestible protein source – good for bones, muscle and cartilage. Salmon, mackerel, sardines and tuna are fantastic sources of omega-3 essential fatty acids and are good for our overall health and maintaining a glossy coat.

Eggs are another good source of protein and full of essential fatty acids – good for bones, joints, teeth and hair.

Potato’sย are a good source of fibre and provide energy. Potato’s should be well cooked and eaten in moderation. Sweet potato’s are more nutritious than white potato’s.

Peas can help harmonise digestion and are diuretic and mildly laxative, hence they make me fart.

Parsley is very nutritious and contains lots of vitamins, minerals and fibre.

If you have any fishy fish cakes leftover, put them in a tub and store in the fridge for a fishy nibble later. We also use them as training treats because they are easy to break up into small pieces and nice and soft for Tom to play nudge five and catch.

No more lonely tatties.

The end.
