Wash in cold water and shred the fish. Wash, pare and cut the potatoes in pieces, cook the fish and potatoes together in boiling water until the potatoes are soft. Drain very dry over fire, mash fine, add butter, seasoning and beaten egg. Beat well, shape on a spoon, and drop into deep hot fat. Fry until brown and drain on brown paper. If they break apart add a little more egg.
