Makes: 8 fishcakes

  • 300g potatoes, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 250g salmon fillets
  • 150ml milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 75g breadcrumbs
  • Oil, for frying
  • Chopped parsley, to garnish

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:50min 

  1. Put the potatoes in a saucepan and cover with boiling water; bring to the boil and cook over low heat until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and mash; set aside to cool down.
  2. Place the salmon in a large frying pan and cover with milk. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat, and gently cook for 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to sit in the milk for an additional 10 minutes. Remove from the milk and set on a plate; flake the salmon and leave to cool slightly.
  3. Combine the egg, chives, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a bowl. Gently mix in the mashed potato and salmon. Divide the mixture into 8 equal portions, shape, and pat down into circles. Lightly cover both sides of the fishcakes with breadcrumbs.
  4. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Cook the fishcakes so that they are golden brown and crisp on the outside and heat through, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Sprinkle with parsley and serve with a salad.
