Ingredients for Salmon Fish Cakes.

      15oz(450gm tin good quality red salmon

  • 1 shallot–chopped small
  • white of one egg
  • 1 tbsp chickpea flour–or any whole flour
  • 1 tsp wholegrain mustard
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 2 tbsp parsley–chopped
  • A pinch of sea salt and pepper to taste.

Absolutely Delicious with a mixed salad


Cut up the fresh salmon and the smoked salmon into pieces as illustrated above–roughly bite-size.

Mix together briefly in a food mixer–they should not be slushy.

Empty them into a bowl.

Carefully pour in the rest of the ingredients.

Taste for seasoning

Scoop out the mixture and mold to form your fish cakes (I use a tablespoon.) Don’t “overwork” the mixture.

Cover and refrigerate for half an hour plus or so–it helps firm up the fish cakes.

Heat the oil on a medium to hot temperature in a frying pan. Very important that the fish cakes cook in hot oil. To test the heat is correct, take one or two small cubes of bread say ½'' square drop those into the hot oil they should should turn crisp and golden within 20 seconds that is the constant heat required to cook your fish cake correctly.

Slide them carefully into the pan and flatten them a little with a fish slice/spatula to hasten the cooking.

Cooking Details

After 3 or 4 minutes flip them over and cook briefly the other side.

When you see the milky liquid appearing from inside the fish cakes, they are READY.

Lift them gently out of the pan and arrange them on a serving plate with sliced lemon.
