Mr S made these. There are certain things that are my domain, fishcakes being one, I like to pretend they are difficult and I’m doing a lot of hard work, but when I got home these were almost finished. I felt redundant but very appreciative. A really good fish cake too. We saw Jamie Oliver make them on a repeat of his Save with Jamie show. I have in my head that Mr S changed a couple of things slightly but I just asked him and he can’t remember. No doubt once I have pressed ‘publish’ he will.
As it’s a Save with Jamie meal it uses cheaper bits, the salmon was frozen, defrost it along with some prawns.
Cook some potatoes in boiling, salted water, leave to steam a little then mash. Pop to one side to cool.
To the mash, add roughly chopped salmon (don’t forget to remove the skin) and prawns, a finely sliced red chilli, the zest of a lemon and some seasoning. Make into fishcakes.
Whizz up some stale bread in a processor and (here’s where he just remembered) add the
cajun seasoning herbs and spices which almost make a cajun seasoning – just make it up!
Dip the cakes in flour, then egg then into the breadcrumb mixture (I did get this job!). Pop in the fridge to chill.
Cook in a 190ºc (fan) oven for about 30 minutes.
We served them with leftover salad from yesterday.
Using FROZEN SALMON, COOKED PRAWNS, POTATOES, RED CHILLI, LEMON, STALE BREAD, CAJUN SEASONING (or near enough), FLOUR and EGG…
