It’s no secret that I love a super simple recipe that can be frozen and is suitable for the whole family! This recipe ticks all of those boxes, and it’s delicious too! This recipe uses basic ingredients that you’re likely to have at home. It’s also budget friendly, easy and very nutritious.
These little fishcakes are suitable for the whole family and can be served a lunch, dinner or as snacks in-between! And because the recipe is so versatile, you can use pretty much any vegetable combo you wish!
Fishcakes are a great way to include fish in your little one’s diet. Do check out my other fish recipes too, including my family-friendly fish fingers, salmon fishcakes for baby and my potato and salmon tots recipe.

- 1 tin of fish (tuna or salmon)
- 350g potatoes
- 1 egg
- 30g cheddar
- A mix of 3 different salads/vegetables (carrot, celery, red pepper, onion, spinach)
- 3/4 basil leaves
- 50g plain flour
- 50ml milk
- Preheat your oven to 200c/gas mark 6 and grease a 12 slot muffin tin
- Peel the potatoes and chop into small pieces. The smaller pieces you cut, the quicker they will cook! Always good when you’re in a rush.
- Add the potatoes to a pan of hot water and boil for around 10-15 minutes
- Whilst these are cooking, chop up your choice of veg finely (we’ve gone for carrot, red onion and celery) and leave aside.
- Once the potatoes are cooked, drain and then leave to cool slightly.
- Mash your potatoes with your fish of choice
- Leave to cool for around 10 minutes
- Beat in the egg and the milk, then add cheese to the potatoes and fish mix
- Once well mixed, stir in your raw vegetables (they will cook in the oven) and basil leaves
- Finally, add the flour. Beat this in well to thicken the mixture
- Evenly distribute the mixture into the muffin tin (pack them in well). Cook in the oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Serve with leaves or salad sticks!
Top tip: if your want to add an extra zing, finish the dish off with a big squeeze of lime juice!
