In a frying pan over a medium heat, warm the oil then add the onion, garlic, chilli and celery. Cook and stir for 5 minutes until the onions are soft and the garlic is fragrant. Remove from the heat and turn out into a large mixing bowl. Add all of the other ingredients, except the breadcrumbs and butter, then mix well with hands.
Divide the mixture evenly into eight haddock cakes. Spread the breadcrumbs out onto a plate then toss the cakes in the breadcrumbs.
Heat a frying pan and melt the butter. Fry the haddock cakes for 6 to 8 minutes on each side until golden brown. Remove from the heat and serve immediately.
