Fish cakes....what side dish?

I bought some spicy cod/sweet potato fish cakes and need some inspiration with a side dish to serve with it...

Because they are made with sweet potato, I'm very reluctant to serve it with mash.

I was thinking of serving it with stir fried veg? Anyone got any ideas?

An aside, I cannot stand coleslaw....bleugh 🤢

Potato - either mashed or boiled and loads of proper parsley sauce.

Green beans & broccoli, steamed then tossed with a little bit of butter.

Green salad. Or purple sprouting broccoli brushed lightly with olive oil and roasted.

I would also go with a salad or simple steamed veg, or maybe roasted courgettes and peppers.

Chips and peas of course, and don't forget the tartar sauce! wine

I like mine with rice.

I think it would go very well with the stir-fried veg.

Wedges and corn on the cob and a green salad

Savoury rice .
Fry long grain rice with a chopped onion about 8 mins. Add clove garlic fry another 2 min. Add carton chopped tomatoes and either veg or chicken stock, about 375 mls. Simmer 15 min until liquid absorbed. Sprinkle some herbs (optional). Yummy and easy.

If they are spicy then depending on the type of spice I'd either go for your Stir fri veg and a chilli dipping sauce, or chorizo spiced veg.

Cous cous and lovely big mixed salad with fish cakes here. Got to be a (wanky) posh fishcake for me though, salmon, spinach and lemon or similar - nothing smoked or cod.

And yes to lashings of sweet chilli dipping sauce.
