300 g potatoes (I didn't measure, I just cooked a few potatoes)
100 g salmon (I used a can of salmon)
1 small handful of fresh parsley (didn't have so I omitted) haha I do it my way.
1 tbsp. plain flour, extra for dusting.
Even though Jamie's method is different, I will give you my method, or they wouldn't be the same.
First I boiled some potatoes, I did a few extra just to have on the side. Maybe 5. In a boil I got ready the can of salmon, I picked out the round bones, and crumbled the salmon. When potatoes are done, drain and mash. Add as much as you want to the salmon, 1 tbsp. flour, salt & pepper and your parsley if you have any, 1 egg & finely grate a little lemon peel. Mash all together. On a plate have some flour. Make into 4 patties and sprinkle with flour as you mold them (will keep them from sticking to your hands while you work), then lay them on the plate of flour and turn over, then set on a plate and finish the other 3. Set in fridge for an hour to firm up a little, I just set mine in the freezer for 15 or so minutes, I didn't have an hour at that point. Put some olive oil or canola in your frypan. I used my cast iron again! Heat to say medium heat, add 2 fish cakes at a time, set timer for 4 minutes, then flip for another 4, done. Watch the oil it disappears, so add more if needed. Cook the other 2 and you have for meal. Easy, and good! Enjoy. I wonder if fish cakes are a Nova Scotian thing? Or is this a well know item, don't know. Sounds Nova Scotian haha.
This is the mashing it all together part.
Made the patties a good size.
Jamie Oliver says a couple lugs of olive oil, so I guess that's not too much, lol.
Very simple, very quick and very good!
