What you need for this recipe


All ingredients
  • 300 g potatoes
  • 6 tablespoons flour
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tins (115 g each) of Saint George sardines in olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon seed mustard
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 sprigs flat parsley
  • 2 spring onions
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
Let's get started


  1. Peel the potatoes and cut them into evenly-sized pieces. Cook them in a saucepan of salted water.
  2. Remove the zest from half the lemon. Remove the outer layer of the spring onions and finely slice them. Wash the parsley, remove and chop the leaves.
  3. Drain the potatoes and let them cool. Put them in a large bowl and coarsely mash them.
  4. Add the sardines mashed with a fork, the flour, lemon zest, mustard, spring onions, egg, and chopped parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Mix gently.
  5. Cover the bowl with film and chill for 30 minutes.
  6. Lightly flour the palms of your hands and shape the mixture into small cakes.
  7. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan. Lightly brown the cakes on both sides. Transfer to kitchen paper to remove any excess oil.
  8. Accompany the cakes with lemon wedges and garnish with the rest of the lemon zest.
