Rex's Fish Cakes

1 large fillet fish (we used cod)
1 large pre-cooked potato
3 Tbs mayo
1 egg
1 Tbs fresh herbs
Bread crumbs(from 2 slices of bread)
2 tbs Veggie oil

Boil fish for approximately 10 minutes. Leave to cool for about 30 minutes or until you can handle the fish comfortably. Remove bones and skin from fish while flaking into a large mixing bowl.

Roughly smash the potatoes (if they aren't already) and mix into flaked fish. Add mayonnaise and egg and mix to combine. Incorporate the herbs and a pinch of salt and pepper into fish mixture.

Form into about 4-5 patties and dredge in bread crumbs. Heat oil in pan to a medium heat. Place fish patties in oil and brown on both sides. All ingredients are previously cooked, so you don't need to worry about cooking through, just browning.

* This is something Rex made up as he went along, so remember measurements weren't taken and these are only guesses. Adjust accordingly

** We used dill, thyme, and marjoram. Would like to use more dill next time but we both love it. We only used both marjoram and thyme cuz we can't tell the plants apart.
