I LOVE salmon, but we’re looking for ways to cut down the cost of our weekly food shop and make our shopping go further. This recipe is PERFECT. I use frozen salmon fillets and two will make 4 large fishcakes. I serve with salmon and potato wedges and you have 4 meals for less than a fiver!
- 2 salmon fillets (I always use frozen in fishcakes – defrost before use)
- 3 large white potatoes (boiled and mashed)
- 2 spring onions sliced
- 1/2 red chilli
- 3 garlic gloves minced
- 1/2 cup of bread crumbs (I like to use a mix of panko & golden)
- Handful of grated cheese (optional but makes them a little creamier!)
- Squeeze of lemon
- 1 egg, whisked
Started by mixing together the raw salmon, garlic, spring onion, chilli and lemon together in a large bowl and season well, before adding in your mash potatoes and combining. Divide the potato mixture into four balls and mould into thick patty’s. Coat in the egg and then into the breadcrumbs until fully coated. Bake in the oven with a dash of oil for 25 mins until golden brown and ENJOY!!
TIP: I always used to make a huge batch of these and keep them in the freezer fo a lazy dinner! Cook from frozen for about 35-40mins until piping hot!
