Tips and Suggestions
Roosevelt potatoes work well with this recipe.
1. For the potatoes: preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Crush the parboiled potatoes slightly with a fork, season with salt and pepper and coat in a little olive oil then roast in the oven for around 25-30 minutes .
2. For the fish cakes: mix the poached salmon, two types of crab meat, mayonnaise, parsley, dill, red chilli and Dijon mustard in a bowl. Shape into cakes and allow to chill slightly in the fridge until the potatoes are almost ready. They can be as big or as small as you like ' if they are around the size of a hamburger patty allow two per person.
3. For the tartare sauce: mix together 4 tablespoons of mayonnaise, the cornichons, capers, parsley, a squeeze of lemon juice and some freshly grated horseradish. Season to taste and then put to one side while you fry your fish cakes.
4. Heat a frying pan with a little oil. When it is hot, fry the fish cakes.
5. Turn the fish cakes once the underneath is golden brown and crispy ' allow the other side to do the same ' this will probably take about 3-4 minutes on each side.
6. When they are almost ready, wilt your spinach in a pan, drizzle over a little olive oil and season.
7. Serve the fish cakes with the tartare sauce, spinach and roasted smashed potatoes.
