This is quite yummy for a change - pretty easy too.

  • Some fish (350-450gm-ish)
  • 150ml milk
  • 150ml water
  • 350gm-ish potatoes
  • tablespoon of something creamy - bestfoods, sour cream, creme fraise, cream (any'll do)
  • whatever herbs take your fancy (parsley, dill, basil, mixed, dry (a bit of chilli powder is good), fresh blah).
  • lemon juice or zest
  • an egg (beaten in a bowl)
  • some flour
  • some bread crumbs (I didnt have any so toasted bread in oven at 60-odd degrees while I prepared the rest, then smashed with a bacardi bottle when I was ready for it)

Put fish, milk, water in to pan. Bring to boil, lower heat then simmer for 4 minutes. Take off heat, put the lid on and leave to sit for ten minutes.

Extract fish with a holey spoon and leave in a bowl.

Boil potatoes. When soft, drain, leave for a few minutes to let moisture evaporate then moosh in pot. Add spoon of creamy yum. Add herbs, lemon juice and a good dose of salt and pepper. Taste (this is the bit you want to be yummy). Flake in fish with your fingers then fold into potato. Just once or twice - don't stir!

Roll patties with floury hands, dip in the egg, then the breadcrumbs. Fry 5 minutes each side.

Serve with watercress salad and a slice of lemon. Yum!
