Have you ever wanted to make fish cakes out of sardines? Here is a great canned sardine recipe.

To continue on with the Sardine theme, here is a recipe that was in my 'inbox' today- the irony.  It is from a Foodbuzz friends site "Devoted for Life".  Great recipes on that site, looking at the blogs name though always causes me to have Olivia Newton John music to haunt my poor brain!

Makes 8-10 Large Fish Cakes

For the Fish Cakes
3 cups Potatoes, cut into chunks (about 1/2 kg)
2 x 120g cans Sardines in water, drained
1/4 cup Parsley, chopped
Zest and Juice 1 small lemon
3 tbsp Dijon Mustard
2 tbsp Green Onions
Salt and Pepper

For the Sauce

1 tbsp Green Onions
2 tbsp Parsley, chopped
1 tbsp Light Mayonnaise
1/4 cup Light Yogurt
Zest and Juice 1 small lemon
Salt and Pepper
Canola Oil for cooking

Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water until tender, about 15-20 mins. Meanwhile, coarsely mash the sardines in a bowl (there's no need to remove the calcium-rich bones as they are soft enough to eat). Mix in the parsley, lemon juice, zest, green onions, and dijon. Drain the potatoes, then mash until smooth. Gently mix into the sardine mixture and season. Moisten your hands and shape into 8-10 large cakes.

In a seperate bowl, mix the sauce ingredients together.

Drizzle some canola oil into a non-stick frying pan and fry the fish cakes in batches for about 3-4 mins on each side until golden and crisp. Serve with the yogurt sauce
