Peel and boil the potatoes until tender, drain and allow to cool and dry.

Mash the potatoes and blend with the cooked fish, butter and lemon zest and parsley.

Add any extras, such as cooked and peeled prawns, smoked salmon or crab meat; season to taste.

Turn out the mixture on to a floured chopping board and separate the mixture. Pat into cakes, as big or small as you wish.

Dip the cakes in beaten egg and cover with the bread crumbs, then simply fry in a little butter until crisp.
