  1. Place the potatoes in a large pot of water, bring the water to a boil. Let the potatoes cook until they are almost tender.

  2. Add the fish to the pot and let the fish and potatoes cook until they are both soft. Drain well and transfer the potatoes and fish to a large mixing bowl.

  3. Add butter, onion, parsley, and egg to the bowl; mash the mixture together. Shape the mixture into patties.

  4. Heat oil in a large frypan over a medium-high heat. Fry the patties on both sides until golden brown. Drain on paper towels before serving.

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • Fish and Potato Cakes be frozen and still tastes great after two months.
  • If you are using already cooked fish in this recipe you can add it to the potatoes after the potatoes have cooked.
