Target Age: 6 months +

Prep: 20 mins   

Cook: 1 hr 45 min plus chilling 

Level: Easy  

Makes: 8-10 bites 



1 small fish fillet of your choice

1 small - medium potato of your choice

1 tsp chives

1 tbsp mixed frozen veg, defrosted

50g mild cheddar, grated

½ small egg, beaten

oil, for greasing

Step 1: Get Ready

- Preheat your oven to 200°C (180°C fan, Gas Mark 6).

- Wrap the potato in foil and pop it on a baking tray. Roast for about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

- Wrap the fish in foil and add it to the same tray. Keep baking for another 10-12 minutes until the fish is cooked through and opaque.

Step 2: Prep the Base

- Once everything's cooked, slice the potato in half and scoop out the insides.

- Flake the fish, make sure there are no bones and toss away the skin.

Step 3: Make the Croquettes

- Lightly oil a baking tray.

- Mash up the potato and mix it with the fish, veggies, chives, cheese, and egg.

- Let the mix cool a bit. Then, shape it into small croquettes.

- Lay them on a foil-lined tray and let them chill in the fridge for 30 minutes. For freezing, pop the tray in the freezer until solid. Once frozen, transfer the croquettes to a freezer bag. Thaw thoroughly in the fridge before cooking.

Step 4: Cooking Time

- Heat your oven to 200°C (180°C fan, Gas Mark 6).

- Arrange as many croquettes as you need on a baking tray.

- Bake for about 15 minutes until they're golden brown and cooked through.
