Place potatoes in a saucepan of salted cold water. Bring to the boil and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until tender. Using a slotted spoon, transfer potatoes to a colander. Add fish to pan and cook for 4 minutes, or until just cooked.

Mash potatoes and flake the cooked fish. Place in a bowl with sliced spring onions, half the coriander, Cajun seasoning, and mustard; season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper; and gently mix together. Shape mixture into 8 patties and dust with flour. 

Heat oil in a nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Cook quartered white onions for 2 minutes on each side, or until golden. Drain on paper towel and set aside. Add fishcakes to the pan and cook for 3-5 minutes on each side, or until golden. Drain on paper towel. Combine reserved white onions, capsicum, avocado, lime juice, and remaining coriander in a bowl; season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. 

Serve fishcakes with avocado salsa, baby cos, mayonnaise, and lime wedges.
