Smoked Haddock and Prawn Fishcakes - Recipe

Another recipe - this time, one of my own concoction. I made some fishcakes (mainly on a whim), the other night, and they turned out great - so I'll share what I did!

Ingredients (makes about 3-4 cakes, each suitable for an adult portion):

1x fillet of smoked haddock
A handful or two of prawns
2 medium sized potatoes
1 small or 1/2 of 1 large sweet potato
Half a red onion, very finely chopped
2 cloves garlic
Some cheap white wine

Skin, bone (with tweezers if necessary) and cube the haddock. Chuck it into a warm pan (with a bit of olive oil) and turn up the heat a bit - you want it to break up as it cooks, not to fry immediately. Add the prawns and the onion.

Allow to cook for a few seconds, then move around the pan and squash - repeat until the haddock has flaked and broken up nicely. Add the wine and simmer until most of the juices is gone - don't allow to dry out completely. Take off the heat.

At the same time, peel, chop and boil the potato and sweet potato - together with the garlic. When soft, mash and allow to cool.

Mix both together, and press into cake shapes - I use a burger press with waxed discs (hurrah for Lakeland) to achieve this. Flour lightly and fry. Serve with vegetables (we did carrots, asparagus and broccoli - lovely).
