Student Recipe: Minted Salmon & Pea Fishcakes

April 19, 2018


This recipe is the holy trinity of student eating with three essential things a good student recipe needs. .. It's cheap. It's healthy, it's easy and it tastes great! Oh, wait that's four things... Even better! Plus, it uses up leftover mash or potatoes from the night before...Dive in!

1. If you’re using leftover cooked potatoes, mash them until they are smooth. Flake the salmon into a bowl, removing any skin and large bones. Add the peas, mint, tartare sauce and mashed potato, and season to taste. Mix well, then, using floured hands, shape into 8 flat fishcakes. Dust with flour.
2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Fry the fishcakes in 2 batches for 3-4 mins each side, turning carefully with a fish slice or spatula, until golden and crisp. Serve with a squeeze of lemon and a green salad.
