Baked Salmon Fishcakes Recipe

Baked Salmon Cakes

These tasty fish cakes are made using Omega-3 rich salmon. They take a while to prepare but can be frozen for up to a month, so it's worth making up a large batch and saving some for later.

2 x 213g cans Red Salmon

2 eggs

1lb/454g cold mashed potatoes

5 tbsp freshly chopped parsley

Spray oil

Black pepper

For the tartare sauce:

3 tbsp natural fromage frais

2 tbsp Greek yoghurt

2 mini gherkins

1 tbsp capers
