1 tbsp olive oil, extra to drizzle
1 onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, grated

For the snoek cakes
1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a baking sheet with baking paper.
2. Heat the oil in a pan over high heat. Fry the onion until translucent. Add the garlic and paprika, then fry for another 2 minutes. Season and set aside.
3. Combine the snoek, potatoes, parsley and the onion mixture. Measure out ⅓ cupfuls and shape into fish cakes.
4. Dredge each snoek cake in flour, then in egg and finally in breadcrumbs.
5. Arrange on the prepared sheet, drizzle with olive oil and bake for 20 minutes, until golden.
