Super easy to make, these fish cakes with potato and dill are ready in no time, and if you have a little helper – even quicker!
Not counting the extra time to clean up the all the mess of course…
They are made with a classic flavour combo of potato and dill and make a healthy lunch or light dinner. I roll the mixture into roughly 1/4 cup sized patties and pass them to my little guy to dip in the flour, egg and then finally the crumb mixture.
The mixture is already cooked so you only have to cook them in the pan until they are golden brown and heated through. I also like to leave the mixture a little chunky so you get a bits of fish and potato.
I’ve crumbled the fish cakes in panko crumbs but you could use wholemeal breadcrumbs if you prefer. If you would rather not use egg, leave them out of the recipe completely, then when it comes to crumbing, skip the flour and roll straight into the breadcrumbs.
Fish Cakes with Potato and Dill
- 400 grams potato (about 3 large potatoes)
- 500 grams white fish
- 1 onion finely chopped
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 1/4 cup dill roughly chopped
- 1 tsp lemon zest
- 2 egg lightly whisked
- 2 tsp dijon mustard
- 100 grams panko crumbs
- Peel, chop and boil the potatoes in boiling water until tender. Roughly mash with a fork.
- Cook the fish in pan with a little oil until just cooked through. Once cooked, using your hands, separate the flakes.
- Combine the potato, fish, onion, garlic, dill, lemon zest, 1 egg, mustard and season well. Form into 1/4 cup sized patties. Dust in flour, dip in egg and then into the panko crumbs.
- Fry patties in olive oil until golden brown.

I have never made fish cakes but this might be a great way to use up leftover fish. Or less expensive fish that the kids will gobble up
yum! these would make for a great, quick weeknight meal.

These fish cakes are absolutely gorgeous! We eat fish at least 2-3 times per week. Definitely want to give this a try!

I love fish cakes, but have only made my own once or twice; these look just perfect though! I’m going to have to try your recipe and make them again, I feel like we need a change from the same old shop bought fish cakes!

I love making fish cakes! Sometimes if I have leftover tuna salad, I’ll just pat them into disks and sear them. These look delicious!
You didnt mention the dijon mustard ,so I left it out
Oops, thanks Bev. I’ll adjust the instructions. I’m sure they would have been just as delicious without :)
