Naturally you can substitute any fish of choice for snoek, but as kids from the West Coast of South Africa, snoek remains our firm favourite.


4 cups (160 g) cornflakes or panko crumbs

500 g smoked snoek

1 onion, finely diced

1 egg, slightly beaten

1 Tbsp (15 ml) Worcestershire sauce

a pinch of mustard powder

1 Tbsp (15 ml) smooth apricot jam

½ cup (125 ml) mayonnaise

juice of 1 lemon

½ tsp (2.5 ml) Tabasco® or hot sauce

2 Tbsp (30 ml) finely chopped fresh parsley

salt and pepper



Preheat the oven to 200 °C. Grease a baking tray.


Pour the cornflakes into a sealable plastic bag and beat with a rolling pin until coarsely ground. You can always pulse it in a food processor, but our method releases a lot more stress. Set aside.


Debone and flake the snoek, but do not make the pieces too small.


Into a medium bowl, mix all the remaining ingredients until combined. Add the snoek and gently combine with a fork. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour. Using a heaped teaspoon, form little cakes. Gently roll in the cornflakes.


You can freeze the cakes at this point or refrigerate for 1 hour, and then bake for about 10 minutes, or until golden brown.


Serve with the apricot mayonnaise or ginger sauce.


Makes about 36


To make the apricot mayonnaise:

1 Tbsp (15 ml) smooth apricot jam (homemade is always best)

½ cup (125 ml) French-style mayonnaise

zest of 1 lime or lemon



Stir together all the ingredients.
