Kirstin: I am a HUGE fan of potato dauphinoise. Tom is not. So I timed the making of this when I knew I would have fellow potato enthusiasts for dinner. Two kinds of potato, one kind of cheese, garlic infused double cream. And while I may have overcooked this (I blame my oven, but that’s another story) it added a rather lovely crunchy texture which even Tom had to admit was rather good.
I love a good fishcake and when I saw these, I was intrigued as potato did not make it into the ingredient list. I used haddock, although she said you could use cod instead. And the curry powder combined with chilli added something very interesting to the mix. Fresh, gorgeous with lemon wedges and perfectly yummy, I would make these again for sure. If you make them though, remember that you have to refrigerate them for at least 30 minutes before cooking, a step I almost forgot! It’s a lovely half an hour to drink a glass of wine and then get on with the frying part.
And see how I’ve saved you all from the terrible fish puns too! Ha!
