Wash produce before use

1

Make the fish cake batter

Prep and cook instructions are identical for all seafood options.
  • Using the large holes of a box grater, coarsely grate the potato, including the skin.
  • Peel and finely chop enough onion to measure ½ cup [1 cup].
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves. Set aside half for garnish.
  • Pat the seafood dry with a paper towel; coarsely chop the seafood.
Crack 1 egg [2 eggs] into a large bowl. Using a fork or whisk, lightly beat until just blended. Stir in the potato, onion, scallions, seafood, fisherman’s spice blend, and half the parsley and mix until just combined. Season generously with salt and pepper.

2

Cook the fish cakes

In a large frying pan over medium-low heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking.
For each fish cake, scoop ¼ cup of the batter into the pan and gently press down with a spatula to form a ¼-inch-thick patty. Cook, turning once, until lightly browned and cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and cover with a clean kitchen towel to keep warm.
While the fish cakes cook, prepare the tomato and eggs.

3

Prep the tomato; fry the eggs

  • Cut away the core from the tomato; cut the tomato into ¼-inch-thick slices. Season with salt and pepper.
In a small [large] frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons butter or oil until hot but not smoking. Crack the remaining eggs directly into the pan and season with salt and pepper. Cook until the whites have set and the yolks are slightly runny, 2 to 3 minutes. If you prefer firmer yolks, cook for 1 to 2 minutes longer.

Serve

Transfer the fish cakes to individual plates. Top with the tomato slices and fried eggs. Garnish with the remaining parsley and serve the ketchup on the side.
