Serves: 4 

  • 220g fresh breadcrumbs

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

  1. In a large mixing bowl, place 3/4 of the breadcrumbs. Set aside remaining 1/4. Add eggs, parsley, spring onions, dill, lemon juice and black pepper. Mix well.
  2. Add salmon and mix with hands, breaking up salmon into small pieces. Form into 8 patties; each about 1.5cm thick.
  3. Place remaining breadcrumbs on a plate and dip both sides of the salmon cakes into crumbs.
  4. In a large frying pan, melt butter. Fry salmon cakes over medium heat for about 3 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Turn, adding more butter if necessary, and fry about 3 minutes on other side.
