2 shallots finely chopped
1lb Salmon Filleted and skinned

Chopped Parsley 1 Tablespoon
Mashed Potatoes – no cream no butter
For the Coating:
2 Tablespoons Plain Floor
2 oz soft white Breadcrumbs

Butter and season a tray. Sprinkle with the shallots and sit the salmon on top. Drizzle with white wine and season with salt and pepper. Cover with foil and bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes – the salmon should be firm to touch but still pink in the middle.
Sit the salmon in a colander over a pan to collect all the juices.
When all the juices have drained, place in a small pot and reduce on a stove to a nice syrup consistency.
Break up the salmon into flakes, add the syrup and chopped parsley, then fold in the potato until you have a binding texture. Check for seasoning and roll into 12 to 18 ball shaped cakes.
To Breadcrumb – Lightly pass through the flour, beaten eggs and breadcrumbs, repeat the process again.
To Cook – Deep fry at 180c/ 350f for 4-5 minutes drain well.
Serve 3 per portion on a bed of steamed baby spinach and lemon butter sauce.
