  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Mix the shallot with the malt vinegar and 1/2 tsp salt in a bowl. Set aside and stir occasionally while preparing the rest of the recipe.
  2. Toast the bread until golden on both sides, then leave to cool. Blitz to crumbs in a food processor, along with the oil and lemon zest. Dust the haddock strips in flour, then dip in the beaten eggs and roll in the breadcrumbs to coat.
  3. Put on a baking tray and bake for 12 mins, or until the fish is cooked through and the crumbs are crisp.
  4. When the fish is ready, drain the sliced shallot in a sieve, then mix with the cucumber, capers and parsley.
  5. Spread 1/2 tbsp mayonnaise over each wrap and top with a little shredded lettuce. Add some of the cucumber mix and 2 fish fingers, then wrap up. Drizzle over a little extra malt vinegar, if you like. Serve with lemon wedges for squeezing.

Tip: Freeze the uncooked fishcakes after step 2. Only suitable for freezing if using fresh, not frozen fish.
