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)! was gooooood!
