If you’ve begun this year with gusto, like me and decided to give your lifestyle an overhaul, you might be delving into cooking from scratch. I find cooking therapeutic and there’s nothing that I enjoy more than cooking up a feast in the kitchen. Especially when it involves delicious, clean food that not only fuels your body but also fuels conversations over the dinner table.
Today we’re cooking up my simple yet delicious fishcakes. They’re easy to make, and take a short time to cook. Team with a fresh salad for an evening meal under 500cal. Don’t say I don’t treat you!

1. Boil potatoes for 30 mins in hot water then drain when soft
2. Add splash of milk and mash, leave to rest

If you’re looking to make melt in the middle fishcakes it couldn’t be more simple, just add a square of cheese into the middle of your fishcake when making them. By encasing the cheese inside the fishcake you’ll create an oozing hot cheese melt when cooked.
