  1. In a large bowl, mix together the mashed potatoes and flaked salt cod. Season and shape into fritters or 'croquettes', about 3cm diameter, or about the length of your little finger.

  2. Dip the fritters into flour, followed by beaten egg and then coat in fresh breadcrumbs. Heat 4 tbsp of the olive oil in a shallow pan over a medium heat. Fry the fritters until golden, remove from the pan and keep warm.

  3. Add the remaining oil to the pan and toss in the onion, garlic, capers, gherkins, preserved lemon and a pinch of salt and pepper - fry for a minute or so. Place the fritters on 4 plates and spoon over the warm dressing. Scatter with fresh chives and serve immediately.
