Heat the milk in a sauce pan and add the fish.

Poach gently for 6-8 mins or until just cooked.

Remove the fish from the milk and set aside to cool.

Peel the potatoes and cut into even sized pieces.

Cover with cold water and season.

Bring to the boil and gently simmer for 15 mins or until soft, then drain and allow to steam dry.

Mash the potatoes.

In a large bowl add the mashed potatoes then flake in the fish.

Add the chopped parsley, chopped spring onion and season.

Gently mix together being careful not to break up the fish too much.

Form into even sized cakes and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Heat a large frying pan and add the oil.

Pat the cakes with the flour and shake off any excess, this will stop them sticking and help give a golden crust.

Place the cakes in the pan and cook until golden on the bottom, try to avoid moving them too much as this will stop them crisping up.

Turn and cook on the other side until golden.

Serve hot with the relish and some mixed salad.
