I am a huge fan of seafood in general and luckily so are my children. Isn't it frustrating when you have to make different dinner dishes for yourselves and the kids? That is why I love these fish cakes. My kids and I absolutely adore them. Plus they are so easy to make.

In this recipe, I first poach the fish and then form them into patties. This method of making the fish cakes ensures the most beautiful flakey fish. Soft doesn't begin to describe them. The contrast to the crisp exterior just works wonders.

Fish cakes sometimes have the tendency to be bland which is why in this recipe we have used herbs, lemon zest and a tiny bit of mustard for that boost of flavour. I would really encourage the use of mustard even if you are making it for your children. It doesn't make the flavours too sharp and in fact, I feel that it really brings the dish together. These fish cakes are the perfect answer to when you want something delicious but are feeling too lazy to spend too much time in the kitchen.
