    Fishcakes with Parsley Sauce

    The British are famous for fish and chips, but another maritime dish, fishcakes, is every bit as British.

    Fishcakes represent two important characteristics of British life: proximity to the sea and frugality. Frugality because fishcakes are often made with leftovers, following the axiom that remnants of any food can be combined with remnants of any other food to make a perfectly tasty new dish. And indeed it’s true.

    Of course the dish does not have to be made with leftovers. Feel free to make it from scratch. But if you should have some cold potatoes and a bit of fish in the fridge, look no further for your next meal.  It’s a versatile recipe that can be served for lunch, with a green salad and a wedge of lemon. Or it can be dressed up for dinner with rice pilaf and vegetable of choice.

    Pour yourself a glass of chilled white wine and away you go!
