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.

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.
