These simple and lovely fish cakes are inspired by the Danish "frikadellar".


Serves 4-6

  • 650g cod fillet, free of skin and bone and cut into 2cm dice
  • 100ml cream
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 60g flour, and a little extra for dusting
  • 4 tablespoons finely chopped wild Garlic
  • 1 tablespoon capers, coarsely chopped
  • 25g butter
  • 1 dessertspoon olive oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Place the fish, cream, egg, flour and wild garlic in a food processor. Season with salt and pepper and using the pulse button, process to combine the ingredients. Be careful not to over mix or the texture will be too smooth and lose its charm. Add the capers and mix in.
  2. Divide the mixture into 12 little patties and with lightly floured hands, shape into neat round cakes. Chill until ready to use.
  3. To cook the fish cakes, divide the butter and oil between two medium-sized frying pans or one large one. When the fat sizzles, add in the cakes leaving a little space between them.  
  4. Cook the cakes over a medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through.
  5. Serve the cakes on hot plates with a salad of foraged leaves and tartare sauce.
