Light and tasty salmon cakes.


  • Mashed potato only mashed with milk not butter, a can of salmon or tuna, 1 egg, some parsley, lemon pepper or black pepper, pinch of salt.


  • 1.

    Cook 4 potatoes until soft enough to mash. Mash with some milk but not butter as you do not want them too runny. Let the mash cool then add 1 can of salmon or tuna. Add 1 egg, pinch of salt and lemon pepper or black pepper and some parsley. Shape into patties and roll in bread crumbs (I add parmasan cheese to the crumbs) and cook in a lightly greased frypan. They can be baked or fried in some olive oil also. Very tasty and yummy. Great for kids who do not eat much fish.

  • 2.

    When serving top with some sweet chilli sauce or natural yoghurt with a salad.


You can add finely chopped onion or shallots for extra taste. The y can also be rolled in just plain flour in you do not have bread crumbs.
Great prepared the day before and re-heated or served cold for lunch etc.
