  • 450g floury potatoes, cut into chunks
  • 350g salmon (about 3 fillets)
  • 2 tsp tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp English mustard
  • zest ½ lemon, plus wedges to serve
  • 1 heaped tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1 heaped tbsp chopped dill
  • 3 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 100g dried breadcrumb
  • 4 tbsp sunflower oil
  • salad, to serve


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 sauce, 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.

Tip – If you prefer mayonnaise this can be substituted for the tomato sauce.
