These seafood sausages can be baked, fried or grilled depending on your taste.
Also, you may substitute any cooked seafood you prefer - they're a great way of using up leftover fish.
A tin of tuna or salmon would be an acceptable store cupboard alternative.
They're a variation on Glamorgan Sausages, which are cheesy and herb together - add some seafood and you'll have something quite remarkable.
Don't listen to people who say 'Sausages are meat' - a sausage is a shape and you can put anything you like into the recipe. People have chicken, turkey, beef, pork, pork & beef combined - we're having seafood in ours!
1 small onion
3 oz (75g,1 cup)white breadcrumbs
3 oz (75g, 1 cup) grated hard cheese (full flavour)
6 oz (150g, 1 cup) cooked, flaked smoked haddock
1/2 tspn mixed dried herbs
1/4 tspn dried mustard
1/2 tspn salt
Milk to dampen mixture
1 egg (separated)
Browned breadcrumbs (to coat)
Oil to fry/baste
Chop the onion finely and mix thoroughly in a basin with the white breadcrumbs, grated cheese, cooked fish and seasonings.
Add the egg yolk and enough milk to make a firm but workable mixture.
Divide the mixture into 8 pieces and mould into a sausage shape.
Leave for 30 mins or so in the fridge to chill to make it easier to handle them.
Whisk the egg white, dip each sausage in the egg white, then in the browned breadcrumbs. Repeat to give a good coating.
Leave for a few minutes in the fridge again before cooking.
Either - heat cooking oil in a frying pan and cook over a low heat for about 20 minutes, turning frequently.
Baste with oil and place them under a medium pre-heated grill for about 20 minutes - turning frequently.
Brush the sausages with oil, place on a tray in a medium oven (Gas Mark 4, 350F, 180C) for about 25 - 30 minutes, turning once.
Serve hot or cold.
They are very tasty and children will enjoy the flavour of them - it's a good way of getting them to eat fish without being presented with a piece of wet fish - much like fishcakes and fish fingers, they don't look like fish.
A salad and some bread and butter would be good.
