Quick, easy, tasty, high in Omega-3. You can probably even trick the kids by calling them hotcakes.


  • 500g Potatoes, scrubbed and diced
  • 1/2 cup Peas
  • 400g can Salmon, drained
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon zest
  • 1 Teasp Mustard
  • 50g Plain flour
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 cup Mayonaise
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced

Step 1

Add potatoes to salted boiling water. Simmer for 10 minutes (leave skin on for extra roughage). Add peas and bring back to boil for 2 minutes. Drain.

Step 2

Add salmon to a mixing bowl and break up with a fork.

Step 3

Add zest, flour, mustard and egg to the bowl and mix to combine.

Step 4

Roughly mash potatoes and peas. Stir thoroughly through the salmon mixture.

Step 5

Pour extra flour onto a plate. Divide the salmon mixture into 10 portions and form into patties approx 2cm thick. Turn on the floured plate to lightly dust each pattie.

Step 6

Bring frypan to medium heat, add olive oil. Lightly fry each pattie for 3-4 minutes each side.

Step 7

Create a "cheat's" aoili. Stir minced garlic through mayonaise.

Step 8

Serve 2 patties with a dollop of aoili and green salad.

Chef's Tips

Salmon can be replaced with tuna. Obviously they would no longer be salmon cakes lol



Replace the salmon with some cooked and flaked smoked cod from the deli. The result is a deicious, very flavoursome fish cake.
