Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the grill.

  • STEP 2

    Place 450g floury potatoes, cut into chunks, in a pan of water, bring to the boil, cover and cook for 12-15 mins until tender. Drain and leave to steam-dry, then mash.

  • STEP 3

    Meanwhile, season 350g salmon fillet and grill for 5-6 mins until just cooked. Cool for a few mins, then break into large flakes.

  • STEP 4

    Mix the potato, 2 tsp tomato ketchup, 1 tsp English mustard, the zest of ½ lemon, 1 heaped tbsp chopped parsley, 1 heaped tbsp chopped dill and some seasoning. Lightly mix in the salmon, taking care not to break it up too much.

  • STEP 5

    Shape into 4 large fish cakes.

  • STEP 6

    Put 3 tbsp plain flour, 1 beaten egg and 100g dried breadcrumbs in 3 shallow dishes. Dip the cakes into the flour, dust off any excess, then dip in the egg, and finally coat in breadcrumbs.

  • STEP 7

    Heat 4 tbsp sunflower oil in a large pan. Fry the cakes over a medium-low heat for 3-4 mins each side until deep golden and heated through.

  • STEP 8

    Serve with salad and lemon wedges.
