Easy Peasy Salmon Fishcakes

In light of the launch of my new project Fish is the Dish, I decided to make some salmon fishcakes.  Here is our easy recipe for them:

Salmon fishcakes


3 fillets of salmon (I use frozen fillets)
3 spring onions (chopped)
Mashed potato
1 tsp chopped chilli (optional)
Plain Flour


  1. Cook the salmon as per instructions. Leave to cool.
  2. Make mash and leave to cool
  3. Break up salmon fillets and mix into mash, add in spring onions and chilli
  4. Form into required shapes, you can make croquettes, small cakes or larger cakes
  5. Then sort out a kind of production line: 1 bowl with plain flour, the next with beaten egg (or flour if you prefer) and the next one with breadcrumbs.
  6. Coat cakes in flour, then egg then breadcrumbs and leave on a plate in the fridge for around 20 minutes to firm up
  7. Heat frying pan and add a small amount of oil and fry each of the cakes until golden.  Remember that the fish is already cooked, so you are just heating it through and getting a bit of colour.

TOP TIP: If you get the kids to help you make the cakes into the shapes that they want, they are more likely to eat them!!
