  • Portion size 32 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 potatoes (1lb/500 g)
  • 1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 2 green onions chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 2 cans red sockeye salmon drained and flaked
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Dipping Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind

Method

Peel and cut potatoes in half crosswise. In saucepan of boiling salted water, cover and cook potatoes until tender, about 15 minutes; drain and return to pot. Using potato masher, food mill or ricer, mash or press until smooth.

In large bowl, combine potatoes, bread crumbs, onions, parsley, lemon rind and juice, garlic, salt and pepper; blend in egg. Fold in salmon. Let cool for 5 minutes. Form by rounded tablespoonfuls (15 mL) into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick patties. (Make-ahead: Place on plates; cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Dipping Sauce: In small bowl, combine mayonnaise, parsley, garlic and lemon rind. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.)

In large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Fry fish cakes, in batches, until golden, about 4 minutes per side. (Make-ahead: Place on foil-lined rimmed baking sheet; let cool in refrigerator. Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Reheat in 375°F/190°C oven, about 6 minutes.) Serve with sauce.
