Potato Fish Cakes

This is not a particularly flash meal but it is something that contains ingredients that a lot of kiwi families may already have in the pantry  and is really about celebrating comfort from the simple things x


gluten free | dairy free | serves 4


1 box frozen Hoki fillets, thawed
2 large Agria potatoes or 1 large orange kumara - peeled, cut and boiled
2 eggs, whisked
1 tablespoon coconut yoghurt
1 cup frozen peas and corn
0.5 cup paleo breadcrumbs
Salt and ground black pepper
2 tablespoons finely sliced spring onion
2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley (optional)

1. Put potatoes on to boil. Preheat oven to 180C.
2. Fry hoki gently in a pan until just cooked through (I like ghee or tallow, but coconut oil is also good). Set aside.
3. Mash boiled potatoes and mix with eggs, yoghurt and breadcrumbs. Add peas/corn and seasoning.
4. Flake the hoki and gently fold into the potato.
5. Heat more oil on a moderate heat.
6. Form patties and brown on each side.
7. Place in preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes to heat all the way through.

Serve with crunchy fresh things.
