This Fishcake recipe is one of the easiest to make and you can even freeze any leftovers for another day.

Makes 8 adult sized fishcakes

Prep: 5 mins

Cooking: 30 mins



  • Tin of Sardines in tomato sauce
  • 4 large potatoes
  • Fresh Parsley
  • Polenta or Breadcrumbs for coating
  • Olive oil

Lemon Mayonnaise

  • 1 Lemon
  • 8 Tablespoons of Mayonnaise

How to make:

  1. Peel your potatoes.
  2. Chop into 8 chunks.
  3. Boil for 20 mins on a medium heat or until soft.
  4. While this is boiling, mix together the juice from the lemon and your mayonnaise.
  5. Drain the water from the potatoes and mash into a large bowl.
  6. Add the sardines and chopped fresh parsley to the mashed potato.
  7. Allow the mixture to cool slightly so that you can handle it.
  8. Form the mashed potato mix into balls. Coat with the polenta or breadcrumbs and flatten into a patty shape.
  9. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a frying pan on a medium heat.
  10. Place your patties in the pan and allow to fry for 5-8 mins each side. Cook until they are lovely and golden. It is better to cook them on a low heat so they do not burn.
  11. Any left over patties cover in cling film and freeze before cooking.
  12. Eat your Fishcakes with a lovely spinach and satsuma salad for lunch or try with vegetables for dinner. Don’t forget to add your mayonnaise as a dip.
