Method

 
In a little olive oil fry the onions and garlic together with the curry powder until the onions are soft but not brown.
Mix the onion with the smoked fish and add the parsley, taste the mixture and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper.

Mix in the egg.
Form little balls and roll in the flour, shake off the excess flour and press flat into a cake.
Fry on medium heat in a little oil until golden brown on both sides.

Serve with cherry tomatoes and gherkins, or for a more wintry meal serve with buttery mash and top the fish cakes with a little onion and beetroot marmalade.

Tip of the day

 
Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
