350g  mashed potatoes

2  eggs, hard boiled

1  egg for dipping

100g fresh wholemeal breadcrumbs

pinch of ground black pepper

Method

1   Poach the fish in milk. When the fish is cooked, using a slotted spoon remove it from the pan (reserve the milk for later). Carefully remove and discard any bones or skin from the white fish fillets.

2   In a bowl flake the fish and mix in the mashed potatoes.

Add a little of the reserved milk to the mixture to help it bind together.

3   Shell the hard boiled eggs and chop. Gently stir into fish mixture.

4   Add pepper to taste and divide the mixture into 8 balls.

5   Dip into the beaten egg, roll in breadcrumbs and oven bake until crisp and golden.
