  • For the fishcakes, put the salmon, egg white, our, dill, mustard and lemon juice in a bowl, season with black pepper and mix well. Lightly squash the mixture together and then with clean, floured hands, divide it evenly and shape into four round patties. Place on a plate, then cover and chill in the fridge for about 10 minutes before cooking.
  • Meanwhile, combine all the ingredients for the dip (if making) in a small bowl, then cover and chill until you are ready to serve.
  • To cook the fishcakes, heat the oil in a shallow pan over a medium heat until hot. Place the fishcakes into the hot oil and cook for a few minutes to colour on the underside, then turn them over with a palette knife. Cook until lightly cooked on the inside and golden and crisp on the outside, about 8–10 minutes.
  • If you are making the dip simply stir the yogurt, dill and mustard together.
  • Serve each fishcake with a small bunch of roasted cherry tomatoes on the vine and a lemon wedge. Enjoy with a dollop of dip and some green salad.

Phil's Tips

Alternatively, you can make eight smaller (mini) fishcakes and adjust the cooking time accordingly. Serve them hot or cold.
