Fish Cakes with Cucumber & Mint Chutney...

Fish cakes a la' Angus

*
Angus made Fish Cakes with Cucumber & Mint Chutney for dinner last night.
*
*
The prepared fish cakes, dusted with flour, ready to be cooked.
*
*
Fish cakes, shallow frying in a small amount of olive oil.
*
*
We had the fish cakes with the Cucumber and Mint Chutney, potato and sweet potato chips and tossed green salad. The chutney was especially delicious.
*
*
It was my job to make dessert.
I prepared the Chocolate Fudge Brownies according to the packet. I melted 1/2 a block of dark chocolate and 1/2 a carton of cream in a saucepan until thick and gooey.
*
I plated it up like I was on MasterChef (with French Vanilla Icecream)!
...it was gooooood!
