Fish cakes

Shred and de-bone leftover fish. Mix with mayonnaise, some spice to taste (Old Bay in US), and 1 tbsp bread crumbs. Form into cakes. Coat gently in bread crumbs. Fry in butter/oil until golden. Serve on a bed of salad or on a roll as a sandwich.

If you would like them to have more body, mix in one beaten egg.

Also works great with canned salmon.
