Great recipe, added a sprinkle of chilli seeds for extra flavour and served with a rocket side salad and soy dressing. Perhaps more of a light lunch than main meal, but all the same very tasty!!!

I'm afraid these "fish cakes" don't hold together well at all! The moment I tried to turn them over they fell apart. A real shame as they were otherwise very tasty... they need something to bind them -egg maybe?

Really easy to make and tasted delicious. My children loved the fishcakes which I made with lemon zest instead of lime.

mmmm this was lovely! I put lots of paprika over the chips before I cooked them and it really lifted the whole dish up!

Lovely change from grilled salmon, I could not get a lime and used lemon, it still tasted good, would maybe add some dried chilli next time

Truly amazing flavour which will make you never want to buy pre-prepared fishcakes again. They were quite labour intensive to prepare though with all the fine chopping and I would say the prep time was more like 30-45 mins - not 15!

Really lovely, great fresh taste and very light. I served with the sweet potato chips and a big salad with sweet shilli sauce. Going to serve tonight with sweet chilli couscous.

lovely recipe! cooked it for my girlfriend and she absolutely adored it. sweet potatoes took a little longer and ended up popping them under the grill for a little while. easy to prepare and make and the wasabi mayo i will be using again

Brilliant - quick and easy. I put the salmon in the food processor and then added the ginger and lime zest. Also added a bit of cracked pepper. They were ready in no time and went down a treat.

Lovely idea. Agree more ginger and chilli are an improvement. Mine came out a bit dryish though.

These really surprised me as they are totally delicious. Be generous with the ginger and lime zest. Great with lime mayo dip.

Really nice. I'm always looking for new ways with Salmon as it's good for you but I don't really like it plain. For me it always needs a sauce or other flavours. Misread the instructions and added a (large) thumb sized piece of ginger instead of thumbNAIL but I think that made it better for me! Also added a couple of finely chopped red chillis. Result was very hot - probably because I made in advance and left in the fridge to "mature"! Love sweet potato wedges anyway. Served with salad, the wasabi mayo, and also sweet chilli dipping sauce (from a bottle).

The sweet potatoe chips are so yummy and this recipe is so easy to do!! Really enjoyed them - though I added a little bit more ginger and will add in a chilli or 2 to spice them up! All in all loved it!! Very filling! :-)
