Method

  1. Warm the oil in a pan over a medium heat. Cook the spring onions, chilli and ginger until the onions are soft. Remove from heat.
  2. Whisk the egg; then add the coriander, salmon, black pepper and the cooked spring onions, chilli and ginger; and stir.
  3. Mash the potatoes, adding skimmed milk as necessary, until no lumps remain. Sift the self-raising flour over the top of the mashed potato; and mix using a fork.
  4. Add the egg mixture to the potato and mix in thoroughly. Then divide into four equal-sized balls and shape into fishcakes.
  5. Dust the wholemeal plain flour over a plate. Roll the fishcakes in flour.
  6. Coat a frying pan with spray oil, and place over a medium-high heat. Add the fishcakes and fry on each side until golden.
  7. Serve immediately with the rocket and a wedge of lime.
