Method

  1. Peel the sweet potato and cut into rough chunks, then put in a microwaveable bowl with a splash of water. Cover with cling film, then cook on high for 8 mins. Meanwhile, whisk the tahini with the lemon juice and enough water to make a thick dressing. Season and set aside.

  2. Carefully remove the cling film from the sweet potato, then blitz in a food processor. Leave to cool for a couple of mins, then add the coriander and coriander seeds. Blitz to a herby mash, then add the salmon, lemon zest, flour and some seasoning. Pulse again – you want the salmon to be roughly mixed in, rather than obliterated to mush.

  3. Shape into four fishcakes. Chill in the fridge if you have time. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add the fishcakes and fry for 5 mins on each side until crisp and golden. Serve with the lemon wedges, tahini dressing and salad.

Beautiful Flavours in the recipe although could do with more specific weights of ingredients such a sweet potato, the mixture ended up very wet and difficult to manage even after being in the fridge ! Don’t take ‘Large Sweet Potato’ literally !
