  • 350g (12oz) salmon fillet, skinned
  • 7 large British Lion eggs
  • 675g (1 1/2lb) mashed potato
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped tarragon
  • 4 tablespoons plain flour
  • 100g (3 1/2oz) natural dried breadcrumbs
  • 4 tablespoons vegetables oil
  • 50g (1 3/4oz) butter, melted
  • grated zest and juice of 1 small lemon
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Place the salmon in a frying pan, add water to just cover and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer for 5-6 minutes or until the fish fakes easily. Transfer to a plate and flake the flesh with a fork.
  2. Place 4 eggs in a pan, cover with cold water and bring to the boil. Simmer for 7 minutes. Drain, rinse in cold water, tapping the shells. Peel and chop roughly.
  3. Mix together the mashed potato, tarragon, salmon and boiled eggs with some seasoning and a beaten egg. Divide the mixture into eight and shape into round patties.
  4. Beat another egg in a shallow dish. Coat the cakes first in the flour, then the egg and then breadcrumbs, turning them until well coated. Chill until required.
  5. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the fish cakes and cook over a medium heat for 8-10 minutes turning once until golden on all sides. Keep warm.
  6. To make the sauce, place the remaining egg, the butter, lemon zest and juice and some seasoning in a heatproof bowl. Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water. Use an electric whisk to whisk for 2-3 minutes or until thick. Serve the fishcakes hot with sauce.

#eggcelent way to start the weekend 
#eggsmyway #eggs #brunchThe best place to store your eggs is in the fridge. Eggs should be kept at a constant temperature below 20°C, so to avoid temperature fluctuations in a domestic kitchen store them in their box in the fridge. But they are not kept in the fridge in the supermarket we hear you cry! Most modern supermarkets are kept below 20°C so refrigeration isn’t necessary. Keeping your eggs in the fridge at home ensures optimum freshness and food safety which is eggcellent news for any #egghead #tofridgeornottofridge #eggmyths #facts #egghacks #britishlioneggs #factfridayPrawns are on the menu tonight !
