Mackerel, sweet potato and pesto cakes

It had been a while since I posted anything.

I have no decent excuses.

But hey here’s what I had for dinner!!


3 medium sweet potatoes (cooked, peeled and mashed)
3 smoked mackerel fillets (flaked)
1 tablespoon red pesto
1 tablespoon plain flour
Salt and pepper for seasoning

I begin by cooking the sweet potatoes in the microwave by piercing the skin and zapping on full power for 3 minutes before flipping over for another 3 minutes on the other side. Allow to cool fully before peeling off the skin and then mashing with a good pinch of salt and pepper.

In a large bowl mix all of the ingredients together.

Split the mixture into 4 and form 4 little patties with your hands.

Heat some oil in a pan and transfer the little fish cakes into the pan with a spatula. After a couple of minutes flip over and cook for a further 2-3 minutes.

Remove, serve and enjoy.
