Method: 

1. Place a frying pan over a medium heat and add 2 tbsp of oil. Once hot, add the shallots and garlic and sweat for 2 minutes
 
2. Remove the mixture from the pan and allow to cool
 
3. Blend the cod in a food processor for 1 minute - you may have to do this in two batches
 
4. Scrape the fish into a mixing bowl and add the shallot mixture, parsley, basil, eggs and breadcrumbs. Mix well and add seasoning
 
5. At this stage it is good to fry off a little piece of the patty mix to use as a tester, then you can adjust the seasoning as you wish
 
6. Divide the mixture into 100g balls and then mould into patties
 
7. Lay the patties out on a tray and refrigerate until required. When you are ready to cook, preheat the oven to 200°c / gas mark 6
 
8. Place a frying pan over a medium heat and add 2 tbsp of olive oil. Once hot, fry the patties for 2 minutes on each side, or until golden all over
 
9. Transfer the patties to a baking tray and cook through in the oven for 3 minutes
 
10. Whilst they are cooking, slice your rolls and add a drizzle of olive oil followed by a slice or 2 of tomato and some rocket
 
11. Remove the patties from the oven and arrange on top of the rocket.
