Fish Cakes

Serves 4

Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 10 minutes


• 1 pound white-fleshed fish fillets, cooked and flaked

• 1 large egg

• 1 small yellow onion, minced

• 2 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard

• 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes

• ½ teaspoon salt

• ¼ teaspoon coarse ground black pepper

• ½ cup cornflakes crumbs, divided

• Vegetable oil for frying


• Place a large skillet on medium-high heat and add enough oil to just cover the bottom.

• In a mixing bowl, combine fish, egg, onion, lemon juice, mustard, parsley, salt and pepper and stir together thoroughly.

• Add half the cornflakes to the mixture and gently toss together.

• Separate the mix into fourths and form each into a round patty. Roll each patty in remaining cornflakes to coat the outside.
