Recipe Ingredients:

2 (6-ounce) cod or coley fillets, skinned and finely cubed
3/4 pound potatoes, cooked and mashed
4 spring (green) onions, finely chopped
2 teaspoons fresh chopped parsley
All-purpose flour, for dusting
4 ounces garlic and herb soft cheese or cheddar cheese

Fresh chopped parsley, for garnish

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat the grill.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the fish, potatoes, spring onions and parsley together.
  3. Divide the mixture into 12 portions. Dust hands well with flour and shape the portions into rounds and then flatten into a "burger" shape.
  4. Place a spoonful of cheese in the middle of 6 of the burgers, top with another burger, shape and mold both burgers to form one burger.
  5. Coat the fish burgers in the egg and bread crumb mixture.
  6. Cook under a moderate heat for 15 to 20 minutes, turning once, basting lightly with the oil.
  7. Garnish and serve with pita bread, a crunchy salad and a spoonful of relish, if desired.

Makes 6 (2-cake) servings.
