Packed with omega 3 and a long list of nutritional benefits (listed below) these fish cakes do more than just satisfy your taste buds and tummy. The cod is meaty and moreish and the chorizo adds another level of deliciousness. I made mine with some cod I picked up from a local fish monger but you can use any other fish you desire; I have also made these very successfully with trout, mackerel and salmon. The sweet potato helps to bulk the cakes out but at the same time adding a comforting texture. Served straight from the frying pan or even the day after cold, whether as a starter for a dinner party or in a kids lunch box these are sure to be enjoyed by anyone.
