Salmon And Hemp Seed Burgers

Makes: 3-4


  • 1 cup mashed potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons hemp seeds
  • 1 tsp English mustard
  • zest of ½ lemon, plus wedges to serve
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped dill
  • 350 g salmon (about 3 fillets) cooked
  • 3 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 100 g dried breadcrumbs
  • 4 tbsp olive oil

To serve: 


  1. Mix the potato, hemp seeds, mustard, lemon zest, herbs and some seasoning. Lightly mix in the salmon, taking care not to break it up too much. Shape into 4 large fish cakes.
  2. Put the flour, egg and breadcrumbs in 3 shallow dishes. Dip the cakes into the flour, dust off any excess, then dip in the egg, and finally coat in breadcrumbs.
  3. Heat the oil in a large pan. Fry the cakes over a medium-low heat for 3-4 mins each side until deep golden and heated through.
  4. Serve salmon cakes in fresh burger buns or lettuce leaves layered with pesto and avocado.
