Mix the spring onions with the potatoes and laver bread and season well with salt and pepper. Bind with the egg. Mould into small cakes.
In a heavy frying pan heat butter and oil together. You need to fry these cakes at quite a high temperature or they will fall apart. Fry until browned on both sides, then drain on paper towels and serve.
