1.  Use flavourful fish

Make sure your fish can stand up to being tossed around in a bowl with other ingredients. A cheap and cheerful fish is usually canned tuna, but fresh fish from your local shop can be a nice alternative. Smoked fish adds a little power as does salmon, hake and haddock.

2. Spice it up

Ouma's recipe is definitely delicious, but sometimes a fusion of comforting and contemporary can be where it's at.

4. Cut the juice

No one likes a soggy meal, especially a wet fish cake that just doesn't have any crunchy texture. Make sure you drain as much liquid as the recipe calls for. If you are unsure, save the liquids in a glass on the side and add later.
