These tasty fish snacks are perfect for parties and great finger food for kids too

Ingredients

  • 4 large potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 350g (12oz) cod or haddock fillet
  • 100g (4oz) frozen peas
  • 30ml (2tbsp) flour
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 100g (4oz) fresh white breadcrumbs
  • Oil for shallow frying
  • Herb-flavoured mayonnaise and lemon wedges to serve

Method

  • Cook the potatoes in a large pan of boiling, lightly salted water until tender. Drain and mash. Meanwhile, poach the fish in a pan of water for 10-12 mins until just cooked. Remove the fish with a slotted spoon and flake it, discarding any skin and bones.

  • Pour boiling water over the frozen peas then drain. Mix together the mashed potato, flaked fish and peas and season lightly. Shape into approx 16 small balls.

  • Roll each ball in a little flour, then beaten egg. Finally roll in the breadcrumbs to coat completely. Place on a plate and cover and chill in the fridge for at least 30 mins.

  • Shallow-fry the fish bites in batches in hot oil for 3-4 mins until crisp and golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain well on kitchen paper. Serve with the herb-flavoured mayonnaise as a dip and lemon wedges.
