    Salmon fingers with mash

    Serve these with some cherry tomatoes to balance the richness of the potatoes.

    • Preparation time: 20 minutes
    • Cooking time: 30 minutes
    • Total time: 50 minutes 50 minutes

    Serves: 4


    • 25g Unsalted butter
    • 130g Fresh breadcrumbs
    • 1 Lemon, zest
    • 50g Plain flour
    • 2 Eggs, lightly beaten
    • 600g Salmon fillet, skin off
    • 4 tbsp Vegetable oil
    • 1.5kg Floury potatoes, such as King Edward, peeled and cut into large chunks
    • 80ml Whole milk


    1. Put the potatoes in a large pan with salted water, bring to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes or until tender. Drain and allow to steam in a colander for a couple of minutes. Warm the milk and butter in a pan. Mash the potatoes until smooth, or put them through a ricer, then beat in the warmed milk and butter. Season.
    2. Meanwhile, make the fish fingers. Put the breadcrumbs in a bowl, season well and add the lemon zest. Put the flour and eggs in separate bowls. Cut the salmon into 8 wedges. Dip them in flour, shake off the excess, dip them into the beaten egg, then into the breadcrumbs. (Keep the remaining flour, egg and breadcrumbs to coat the fishcakes later.)
    3. Heat the oil in a pan and fry the fish until golden, around 2 minutes per side. Keep back 300g mash to make the fishcakes, and serve the rest with the fish fingers.
