  • 350
    peeled potatoes
  • 155
    tin chilli pilchards

    small onion, finely chopped

5 mins
Boil the potatoes and mash with a little butter, I use a potato ricer, I never have lumps, it's great utensil.
Open the tin and separate the fish from the juice.
Now I have a thing about the backbones so I always remove them, it’s up to you.
Using only 1/3 of the juice, mash together with the fish.
Mix the fish, onions and potato and leave in the fridge for 30 minutes to cool and firm.
Form into patties using a little flour on the board, dip into beaten egg and then into breadcrumbs.
Once again leave them in the fridge to firm.
Fry until golden brown.
