  • In a large mixing bowl add the potatoes, fish and seasoning and mix well.
  • Add the butter and then milk until you have a nice consistency. If you need to add less milk or more then do so.
  • Add a little flour and then make into patty cakes.
  • Place in the fridge for about three hours to help make them solid.
  • Cook in the Air Fryer for 15 minutes on 200c.
  • Serve!


The key ratio with this recipe is always 75% fish to 25% potato. So remember this if you want to increase or decrease portion sizes. Also if you find that the mixture is not binding very well then add an egg to the mixture.
