Method

  1. If you’re using leftover cooked potatoes, mash them until they are smooth. Flake the salmon into a bowl, removing any skin and large bones. Add the peas, mint, tartare sauce and mashed potato, and season to taste. Mix well, then, using floured hands, shape into 8 flat fishcakes. Dust with flour.

  2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Fry the fishcakes in 2 batches for 3-4 mins each side, turning carefully with a fish slice or spatula, until golden and crisp. Serve with a squeeze of lemon and a green salad.

Scrumptious... my other half and I couldn't get enough of them. I used fresh salmon in my fishcakes and chopped capers and mayo, rather than using tartar sauce.

I used fresh salmon rather than tinned, which I baked in the oven for 10 minutes and then flaked into mash. Really tasty and easy to make.

I used leftover cooked salmon rather than tinned and they were delicious. They looked as tasty as the picture too. Easy to do and my kids loved making them. They liked eating them too!

These work really well with a creme fraiche tartare sauce.
Also pop them in the fridge for about 15 mins before you cook them to firm them up slightly so they break less when frying.

My standby fishcake recipe, but be careful not to make them to thick as this adds to cooking time & can cause them to be over cooked on the outside.
