Fish Cakes

Day 14 of 3O.

30 recipes in 30 days is intense! Sometimes the recipes don't work so some days it's been 2 or 3 dishes cooked! I actually thought it would be an expensive challenge, but it hasn't and I have eaten well and healthy too, ie just eating small dishes, but delicious ones and satisfying ones. I can't say it's been good for my sleep as I'm still up at 1.30am...

I've made these fish cakes for a starter for tomorrow as I have friends arriving for 10 days of summer holidays in SW France.

So as it's summer, I am loving seafood and I thought I would try these as a starter or smaller ones would work great as an appetiser.

Again a simple, no recipe 'recipe'. So all you need is:

200g prawns

200g scallops

100g breadcrumbs

1 garlic clove

1 teaspoon crush ginger

1 egg

Juice of 1 lime

handful of parsley

1 taespoon harissa

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Salt & Pepper

Place everything in the blender

Blend to an almost smooth mixture, nice to still have some bits of prawns

Take a tablespoon of mixture at a time and in a very hot frying pan, fry for 5 minutes on each side. 1 tablespoon for a starter, 1 teaspoon for an appetiser.

The mixture is sticky, and needs to be left to brown before being turned over.

Serve warm, or leave to cool and re-heat in the oven the following day.

Serve with sweet chilli dipping sauce and a cucumber and seasame salad. Voila!
