Salmon fishcakes with tartare sauce
This recipe is really easy and perfect for kids. 

Tartare sauce:

200g mayonnaise

2 small gherkins , chopped

2 tbsp capers, roughly chopped

½ tsp of Goodall’s shallot paste

1 tsp horseradish sauce

½ tsp dry mustard

2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

Salmon fishcakes

85g stale white bread

600g cooked salmon

300g cooked potatoes, mashed without milk and butter

2 tsp of Goodall’s dried parsley

Freshly ground salt and Goodall’s black pepper

2 eggs, beaten

3-4 tbsp vegetable oil or olive oil

Preheat the oven to 150°C / 300°F / Gas Mark 2. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

First, make the tartare sauce. Combine all the ingredients together and chill in the fridge until needed.

Chop the bread into small cubes. Arrange on a baking sheet and leave to dry out in the oven for about 15 minutes. Blitz into crumbs using a food processor.

Coarsely mash the salmon together with the potatoes. Add the parsley and season to taste.

Form twelve 3cm thick flat cakes.  Place each cake on a large plate then wrap with plastic film. Put them in a fridge for at least 1 or 2 hours to harden.

Pour the eggs and the breadcrumbs onto 2 separate large plates. Soak each fish cake in the beaten eggs then coat with the breadcrumbs. Lay onto another plate.

Pour a drizzle of oil into a large frying pan and set over medium heat. Place the fish cakes into the pan and fry for about 4 minutes on each side, until they take a nice golden colour. Transfer onto kitchen paper to drain the excess oil.

Serve together with a big spoonful of tartare sauce.
