Method

  1. Put the salmon, horseradish, lemon zest and half the dill in a food processor, season and blitz to a fine paste.

  2. Shape the mixture into 4 burgers. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the burgers for 4 mins on each side until golden.

  3. Meanwhile, mix the remaining dill with the mayonnaise and spread a little onto the base of each roll. Toss the watercress in the lemon juice and put a handful on each roll base. Top with a burger and finish with slices of cucumber and radish. Replace roll tops to serve, if you like, or serve them alongside.

Delicious! Very quick to make.

I have made many different types of fishcakes and would like to suggest that perhaps instead of blitzing to a paste you whizz just a it so there is still some texture to these burgers and that you have some larger "chunks" of Salmon. Hope this helps.- Lois-

Me and my husband liked these but the kids who usually wolf down 'pink' fish didn't (possibly the dill and lemon).

having picked up tartare sauce instead of horseradish..... Silly me.... I thought I'd try these using the former. They were lovely and I'll definitely make them again... Maybe even with horseradish!

The uncooked burgers looked like cheap sausage meat - very unappealing. The finished result was pretty disappointing too. I think you would get a better result by pan frying the salmon fillets and serving with a blob of dill mayonnaise on the side.
