  2. While the quinoa cooks, fill a medium sized pan with 1/2 inch of water, bring to the boil then add the smoked haddock and reduced the heat, covering with a lid, and allow the fish to poach for 6 to 7 minutes. Remove and drain.
  3. Flake the fish into the quinoa. Beat 1 of the eggs and add it to the fish and quinoa, together with the chilli flakes, spring onion and eggs. Mix the ingredients together. Shape the mixture into 4 fishcakes.
  4.  Heat the oil in a pan and fry the fishcakes for 6 to 7 minutes on each side, until golden.
