Our homemade fishcake is unique and was invented to avoid wastage from the fishmonger counter. The recipe has evolved over a number of years and the version below is considered to be the best! — Darren Marriot


  • 1 kg desiree potatoes (peeled and cooked weight 800 g)
  • Sea salt
  • Ground white pepper


Wash, peel and re-wash the potatoes and then cut into large chunks. Cover the potatoes with cold water in a suitable pan and add a good pinch of salt. Gently bring to the boil and simmer for 18 minutes. Drain the potatoes thoroughly. If they still have a lot of excess moisture, place the potatoes in a shallow tray and bake in the oven for approximately 15 to 20 minutes on a low heat to dry them
