Salmon Fish Cakes Recipe

A fish cake recipe that utilises the rich taste of salmon for a memorable dish.

Rating:

Fish: Salmon
Serves: 4

PREPARATION METHOD

Fish cakes are often a firm favourite with kids and in fact anyone who likes a simple, wholesome, but very tasty and satisfying meal.

And because this particular salmon fishcakes recipe uses John West Skinless & Boneless Pink Salmon, all you have to do is open the can, drain it, and then off you go.

Of course you can buy ready-made fishcakes at any supermarket, but where’s the fun in that?! Besides, when you follow our simple salmon fishcakes recipe, you’ll get much, much tastier fishcakes, which are all the more enjoyable because you made them yourself and know exactly what went into them. So get cooking, and then serve with your favourite vegetables or a light salad. Or for a change, forget weight watching and indulge yourselves with a pile of freshly cooked chips.

To prepare our Salmon Fishcakes recipe preheat your oven to 190*c or gas mark 5. In a large mixing bowl add the mash and with a wooden spoon soften the potato a little. Now add the John West drained pink salmon, dill and lemon zest. Season with a little salt and milled pepper and mix well.

Divide the mix into 4 balls and shape into a fishcake. Then leave to cool in the fridge for 15 minutes. Meanwhile place the egg; flour and breadcrumbs into 3 separate bowls.

Dust your fishcakes in flour until completely coated. Then dip into the egg and roll in breadcrumbs. Repeat with the remaining fishcakes.

Add 2 teaspoons of sunflower oil to a non-stick frying pan and gently cook the fishcakes until golden on both sides, place onto an oven tray and pop into the oven to warm through, for about 10 minutes.

Make the tartar sauce, by simply mixing all the ingredients together in a bowl. Serve your fishcakes with a spoonful of tartar sauce and your favourite vegetables.

Hint: For a stronger flavour use John West Red Salmon. If you enjoy the skin and bones variety, simply mix it and the bones will crush.
