For the fishcakes:
Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil and add the potatoes. Cook for 20 minutes until soft then drain. Mash together with the milk, butter, horseradish and seasoning. Transfer to a mixing bowl. Into the mixing bowl add the flaked fish, breadcrumbs, herbs, lemon juice and egg. Mix well with the hands and form into 6 cakes. Pat the cakes with the flour.
In a frying pan over a medium heat, warm the oil then fry the fish cakes for 5 to 8 minutes on each side until golden brown.
For the lemon sauce:
Meanwhile, in a saucepan over a medium heat add the wine and lemon zest and juice and simmer to reduce to half. Mix the cornflour with the water and add to the saucepan. Add in the cream and chives and stir until thickened.
To serve, place the fishcakes on warm serving plates and pour the sauce over. Serve immediately.
