Method

Place the potatoes into a pan of boiling water and cook until tender, 7-8 minutes.

In a microwavable bowl add the chopped cod and peas, cover with cling film, cook for 3 minutes and drain. In a mixing bowl lightly mix the potato, cod, peas and parsley, season with a little salt and pepper. Divide the mixture into 4 balls. Take a ball in the palm of your hand and press a cube of cheese into the centre. Form back into a ball trying to keep the cheese in the centre and encased in the potato. Flatten out into a fishcake shape. Ideally chill for 20 minutes.

Place the flour, beaten egg and breadcrumbs into three separate bowls. Cover the fishcakes in the flour, roll into the egg and toss in the breadcrumbs. Pat gently and reshape if needed.

Fry the fishcakes in the sunflower oil over a medium heat for about 5 minutes on each side. Turning every so often. Serve with crisp salad or your favourite vegetables.

Potato Peel Soup Recipe by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall

"There’s nothing humble about this soup’s rich, creamy flavour – it tastes, remarkably, like mushrooms. And if it seems just a little too pared-back, it’s very easy to jazz it up with some nice finishing touches. Make sure the potatoes are well scrubbed before you peel them so the peels are very clean.
