Mix the mashed potato in a bowl with the haddock, then add this to the bowl with the spring onions, salt and pepper and mix well (don't let it get too smooth though, you want chunks of fish). Form burger like pates with the mix (2 is usually good).

Beat up the egg in another bowl. Place the panko crumbs on a plate, then dip each pate in the egg first, then in the crumb.

Fry off in a medium hot frying with the butter and oil for around 5 minutes each side till golden brown. Serve with hopme made tartare sauce and enjoy :-)


Use all butter if you prefer a delicious rich flavour.
