Add the cooked baby potatoes to the fish and mash together. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix through.

Heat your non stick pan and add a little olive oil.

Form small balls (about the size of golf ball) with your hands and flatten.

Fry a few at a time in until golden brown on both sides. Serve with a hearty Salad.
