Sandwich: Toasted Fishcakes

Back when Mummy made breakfast for me to bring to school, I’d always be pleasantly surprised whenever it was toasted fishcake sandwiches. Even though she made it every Friday.

This concept of ‘fishcakes’ is really quite unique to Singapore. For some reason, it’s extremely difficult to find it even in other parts of Asia, not to mention Europe. Back in London, I’d only find it in Chinatown; what a tragedy.

In any case, if and when you get your hands on some ‘fishcake’, please treat yourself to a morning toasted fishcake sandwich. It will complete your day (and your life).

  • 1 piece of fishcake, halved and toasted
  • 2 slices of bread, white or wholemeal
  • 1 thumbsized knob of butter, halved

With a knob of butter and a hot toasty piece of fishcake wedged in each slice of bread, you’ve got one more thing to make your Friday brighter.

Pizza: Fishcake & Sweet Pea

Earlier this afternoon, my dad gently requested, with a clenched fist, that I make pizza for dinner. This is one of the four I made:

If you ever have time and you feel like making a pizza, please try this one out. Thin crust pizza with fishcake and sweet pea topping, it’s comfort food to the max.

Fishcake is something I sorely miss while in London, for some reason, they don’t have it at the supermarket. Only Chinatown stocks it. And oddly enough, further up north of England, my peers have it in almost every homecooked meal. Such is life.

Back to the Fishcake. It’s marvellous when toasted or barbecued. So when it’s on a pizza, baking away with a coupla parboiled sweet peas, the result is maximum comfort in satisfaction.

Please. Try it. Soon.
