​Bold & Beautiful: Exquisite Smoked Haddock Fishcakes With Capers & Lemon

Posted by Stelios on 6th Aug 2023

Dive into the world of culinary satisfaction with our bold and tantalising Smoked Haddock with Capers & Lemon Fishcakes. Not every palette will appreciate the explosion of taste, but this dish is an irresistible treat for those adventurous souls who revel in robust flavours.

We recommend un-dyed haddock for its unique, unadulterated taste. However, dyed haddock works as well, adding a vibrant yellow tone to your fishcakes. Coupled with the richness of flavour, the refreshing dash of lemon juice and parsley ensures a balanced and exciting taste experience.
