Smoked Haddock Recipe For Fish Cakes

My smoked haddock recipe for fish cakes is really easy to do and the flavors are fantastic. In addition I've added rocket to the mix as its peppery zing is the perfect accompaniment to the oily fish.

Smoked Haddock Fishcakes With A Green Leaf Salad

The haddock needs steaming for 10 minutes but you can do this at the same time as boiling the spuds so preparation time is at a minimum.

Serves:- 4 people

Preparation Time:- 15 minutes
Cooling Time:- 30 minutes
Cooking Time:- 40 minutes

Total Time:- 1 hour 25 minutes


  • 750g or 1½lb potatoes
  • 450g or1 lb skinned smoked haddock
  • 50g or 2oz butter cubed
  • About 75g or 3oz rocket, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 250g or 8oz 200g breadcrumbs
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil


Peel and cut up the potatoes for mashing and then boil them for 20 minutes. Drain and mash.

Steam the smoked haddock filets 10 minutes until opaque and flaky.

Spoon the mashed potato into a mixing bowl, throw in the cubes of butter, flake in the smoked haddock and add the rocket. Season with salt and papper and then get your hands in and gently mix. Don't be too aggressive otherwise the fish will lose it's flaky texture and once complete allow the mix to cool for about 30 mins.

Now make the mix into patties, dip each pattie into the beaten egg, then into the breadcrumbs and finally into the frying pan with hot olive oil.

Turn after 3 minutes and you should have that lovely golden brown color, a further 3 minutes on the flip side and it's job done.

If you want to be posh, serve on a crisp mixed leaf salad topped with a spoonful crème fraîche (oops! - forgot the crème fraîche in my piccie). Otherwise, break out the baked beans and squeeze on some ketchup.
