Crisp Mashed Potato Fish Cakes

By Kitchen Belleicious

Serving Size: 6 Prep Time: 15 mins Total Time: 45 mins


  • 2 ½ cup leftover mashed potatoes (I use twice baked-recipe follows)

  • 1 ½ cup shredded leftover fish

  • 1 egg

  • 2 cup panko bread crumbs

  • ½ tsp cracked black pepper

  • ½ tsp cajun seasoning

  • paprika

  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese

  • 1 4-5 pound bag of golden yukon potatoes

  • ½ cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

  • ½ tsp salt

  • ¼ tsp pepper

  • ¼ tsp garlic powder

  • ¼ cup green onions, chopped

  • ½ cup milk

  • ½ cup sour cream

  • 3 Tbsp butter


  1. Mash together your potatoes and fish. Add in the seasonings then the egg and panko. Mix well. Form into small patties, approximately 2-3 inches. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or all day. I like to do this in the morning so I can can breathe as dinner approaches knowing I already have it all together.

  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, add 1/4 cup oil. Once the oil is hot (you can drop a small crumb from your patties to see if the oil sizzles, if so, then you're ready) and pan-fry the patties 2-3 minutes on each side until they reach a golden brown. You might have to do this in batches of 3-4 patties as you don't want to overcrowd the pan. Serve hot and enjoy!

For the Potatoes:

  1. Boil potatoes in a large stockpot until you can insert a fork easily into the center of a potato. Drain, toss in the butter, cheese, seasoning, sour cream, green onions and milk. Mash until everything is combined.
