    Before oil came out they would have been cooked in lard. Before oil came out the fish/chip shops used lard. ;-)

    I bet they were cooked in BACON grease originally. Refined oil, that includes lard, would have come later.

    I can easily see how frying fish cakes in bacon grease would have been a camping way to make them. My Grandma would have done them that way, she used bacon grease for lots of stuff (lived to be 98!)

    Make sure they are good and cold. This will also stop them collapsing. 8 To cook heat up the butter and oil in a large shallow frying pan – having a mix of butter and oil will stop the butter burning. Carefully place each cake in the pan and fry over a medium heat for 3 minutes on each side

    Yes but it's not the ideal method as lard leads to heart attacks. Olive oil is the best for frying anything.

      Olive oil is good to SAUTE in, but it has too low a smoke point to deep-fry with it.
