  3. Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan 160°C/gas mark 4. Grease a baking tray with oil.
  4. Place the flour, egg and breadcrumbs into three separate, shallow bowls. Remove the fishcakes from the fridge and dip each into the flour. Shake off any excess flour, then dip into the egg and finally coat in the breadcrumbs. Place the fishcakes on the prepared baking tray and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until crisp and golden on the outside. Serve with salad leaves.
