    How to make Fishcakes

    According to history the Fishcake originated in Chinese cuisine over 4,000 years ago. It is traditionally made with white fish such as Cod.

    In this recipe we are going to simplify the idea a little and use tinned Pink Salmon, which is great if you want to be sure of no bones in the Fishcakes.
