Serves: 4 

  • 1 large baking potato, about 250g, peeled and thinly sliced
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 415g tin pink salmon, drained
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons dry white breadcrumbs
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Cook the potato in a small saucepan of lightly salted boiling water for 6–7 minutes, or until tender. Drain well, transfer to a large bowl and mash with a potato masher. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  2. Meanwhile, to make the sauce, mix together the dill, vinegar, sugar, 1 tablespoon of the mustard and 1 1/2 tablespoons of water in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. Add the mayonnaise, lemon zest, lemon juice and the remaining mustard to the mashed potato. Add the salmon and mix together. Shape into four even-sized cakes.
  4. Combine the breadcrumbs and parsley on a plate. Dredge the fishcakes in the crumb mixture, patting it on.
  5. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a moderate heat. Fry the salmon cakes for 4 minutes on each side, or until browned and cooked through. Serve the fishcakes with the sauce.

I left out the brown sugar, bread crumbs and parsley. I cooked the salmon patties on a sprayed pan, and served with the dill-mustard sauce. Other than an over whelming vinegar sensation, this tastes great and looks interesting! - 13 Apr 2010
