Prep and cook time: 40 min


Difficulty: Medium


Cannot be frozen




Ingredients:


For the fish cakes:


600 g | 21 oz | 4 cups wild salmon fillet, skinless and pin-boned, cut into chunks


2 spring onions, finely chopped


2 tsp Dijon mustard


1 tsp paprika


1 pinch cayenne pepper


1 large egg


2 tbsp lemon juice


4 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for greasing


sea salt


freshly ground black pepper



To serve:
180 g | 6 oz | 6 cups mixed lead salad


2 lemons, 1 halved, the other sliced


1 tbsp flat-leaf parsley, leaves only, finely chopped, plus extra to garnish




Method:


1 For the fish cakes: Add the salmon chunks to a food processor and pulse a few times until very roughly minced; take care not to overmix at this stage.



2 Scrape the fish into a bowl and add the spring onions, mustard, paprika, cayenne, beaten egg, lemon juice, and plenty of salt and pepper. Mix together with your hands until evenly combined.



3 Shape into patties between lightly greased palms.



4 Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan set over a medium heat until hot. Place four patties in the oil and leave to fry for 3-4 minutes until golden-brown underneath.



5 Flip and cook for a further 3-4 minutes until golden-brown on the other side. Remove to a plate lined with kitchen paper, and cover loosely with aluminium foil.



6 Wipe the pan clean and repeat steps 4 & 5 for the remaining patties, using the remaining oil.



7 To serve: Divide the salad leaves between plates. Position the fish cakes next to them and serve with a garnish of lemon, a sprinkling of chopped parsley, and some extra parsley sprigs as a garnish.
