Inspired by Instagram

I'm not massively into my social media but I do follow a couple of people on Instagram who post pictures of family meals. I get inspiration from them for my own cooking.

One of my favourite people to follow is Fastfoodmystyle - a busy working mum who loves to cook. Last week, she made smoked haddock and leek fishcakes, which I decided to try my hand at.

I didn't have a recipe, so I just made it up as I went along! I bought 2 fillets of smoked haddock and baked them in the oven until cooked through. Whilst that was baking, I sautéed 3 onions. When the fish was done, I flaked it with a fork and stirred in the cooked onions. I added 2 eggs, 3 tablespoons of ground flaxseeds and some dried tarragon. I didn't add salt as smoked fish already has quite a strong flavour.

I formed the mixture into patties, placed them on a baking sheet and baked them for 20 minutes, turning halfway through cooking.

Naturally, I served them with the usual array of different coloured vegetables.

Mmmmm - they were delicious... downside was that the entire house stunk of fish. Note to self: close kitchen door whilst cooking smoked fish!
