Cod fennel and caper fishcakes HERO

Put the fish and bay leaves in a pan. Cover with milk and bring to the boil. Simmer for 5 minutes, until the fish turns opaque. Remove the fish and leave to cool, then flake. Add the fennel to the milk and simmer for 5 minutes, until softened. Strain and discard the bay leaves.

Mix the fish, fennel, mashed potato and capers, season and divide into 8 patties. Roll in flour, then dip in egg and breadcrumbs. Put on a baking tray lined with nonstick baking paper. Chill for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°. Drizzle the fishcakes with oil and bake for 10 minutes on each side, until golden.
