  • Peel and cut potatoes, stick them in boiling water in a microwavable dish and cook on full power for about 10 minutes. (or cook on hob).
  • Whilst potatoes are cooking, heat milk in a pan so that it is ½ cm up the pan side, add the fish. Simmer the fish for 5 minutes with a lid on. Drain and pat dry with kitchen towelling. Flake the fish and ensure there are no bones in the fish.
  • Blitz the bread into breadcrumbs with a handheld blender and pour onto a plate.
  • Mash the potatoes with a knob of butter, herbs, lemon zest and black pepper. Stir in the fish, veg and a little of the egg.
  • Pour remaining egg into a plate
  • Flour your hands, then take small amounts of the mixture and shape. Dip each fish cake into the egg then roll in the breadcrumbs.
  • Heat the oil in a large pan, turn to medium heat then place all fishcakes into the dish at once and cook for 5 mins on each side.


Weaning: This is fine to give babies from six months. 

Tip: Keep 1/3 of one salmon to use the following day on bagels with cream cheese. I also separate the fish cakes and add chili flakes to give a kick for adult versions.

We know what a pain it is to scrub at your baby's clothes each day, so my husband and I designed a lightweight baby bib. The bib covers clothes from your baby's neck to their toes and is tight at the cuffs. Check out our range of bibs here
