bamix® Recipes: Salmon and prawn fishcakes




  • 500g floury potatoes such as King Edward or Maris Piper, peeled and cut into cubes
  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 180g cooked peeled prawns 
  • 4 spring onions, trimmed and sliced1 tbsp whole grain mustard
  • 2tbsp chopped fresh dill
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 2 Free Range Eggs, beaten
  • 4 slices of white bread 
  • Sunflower or olive oil spray
  • 1 jar tartare sauce
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges



  1. Place the potatoes in a large pan, cover with water, bring to the boil and simmer for 10-12 minutes until tender. Drain very well and let steam dry.

  2. Once the potatoes are cool and dry add them to a large bowl. Using the Bamix C blade, mash until smooth.
  3. Meanwhile, place the salmon in a small frying pan and cover with boiling water. Simmer gently for 5 minutes until cooked through. Drain and discard the water, then break into large flakes, discarding the skin.
  4. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. Stir together the mash, spring onions, mustard, chopped dill, and lemon zest. Fold in the flaked salmon and prawns, then season.
  5. Shape the mixture into 8 even-sized cakes – the mixture will still be warm, so leave to cool a little if necessary.
  6. Now blitz the bread with the Bamix C blade until you reach fine breadcrumbs. Tip the breadcrumbs onto a large plate.
  7. Dust the cakes in flour. Place the beaten eggs onto a plate. Dip each cake first in the egg and then in the breadcrumbs, making sure they are evenly coated.
  8. Transfer the fishcakes to a large non-stick baking tray and spray lightly with oil. Bake for 20-25 minutes until crisp and golden brown. Serve with tartare sauce and lemon wedges.
