What you need:

2 sweet potatoes (yams)  cut into chunks
250g potatoes, cut into chunks
500g white fish fillets
1 red chilli, finely chopped
2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
100g polenta ( or breadcrumbs)
4 tbsp olive oil

What you do:

Place all of the potatoes in a pan of cold, salted water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes, until tender. Drain, mash, and set aside to cool.

In the meantime, put the fish fillets in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil, then turn off the heat and leave to cook for 6-8 minutes.

Remove the fish fillets from the water, drain and flake into the mashed potato. Stir 1 red chilli and 2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander into the mixture, then adjust the seasoning to taste.

Shape the mixture into 8-10 balls, flatten them slightly and chill until ready to cook.

Place the polenta (or breadcrumbs) on a plate and roll the fishcakes in it, to coat. Heat 4 tbsp olive oil in a pan and fry the fishcakes for 4-5 minutes each side, until golden and piping hot.
