    Prep Time: 5 minutes

    Cook Time: 30 minutes




    • Firstly, peel, quarter and then boil the potatoes & cook the fish. Then I cheated by using leftover boiled potatoes and sticking two frozen fish fillets in the microwave, but you could quickly grill or poach them in a little milk.
    • Then turn the grill on to a high. While it’s warming up, bring the cooking oil to heat in a pot. When it’s hot, tip the masala powders in, and as they sizzle, toss in the boiled potatoes.
    • Speed is of the essence here or the spices will just burn to cinders. Mash the potatoes in the pot. Once smooth, mix in the fish and the lime juice. I tend to do this with my hands as it’s much easier to get stuck in. Add salt to taste.
    • Now, finally, line a baking tray with foil and grill on high for about eight minutes on each side. When you turn them over, the fish cakes may be a bit soft and threaten to fall apart. But just piece any bits together and crack on.
    • The end result will be golden crisp on the outside, with a squidgy lemony center.
    • Now finally, serve with a smile for the kids and with ketchup spiked with chili powder for the bigger ones.
