The method

  1. Mix the fish and mashed potato together. Add a squeeze of lemon juice, season with black pepper and add a little of the egg, if necessary, to bind the mixture together. Divide the mixture into 4 even sized pieces then pat each into a ‘face’ shape. Make indentations where the eyes and mouth will be. Place on a plate, cover and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas mark 4. Grease a baking tray with vegetable oil.
  3. Place the remaining egg, flour and breadcrumbs into three separate shallow dishes. Dip each fish cake into the flour, tapping off any excess. Then dip them into the egg and the breadcrumbs and place on the prepared tray. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
  4. While the fishcakes are cooking, cook the pasta in boiling water according to pack instructions. Drain well.
  5. Once everything is ready, get assembling! Put the fishcakes on plates and use the spaghetti to make Princess Leia’s famous hairstyle! Cut 4 of the mozzarella balls in half then add a piece of black olive to make the eyes and add a piece of red pepper to make a mouth.
