Fish Cake Recipes | 2 Tasty Recipes With Tartare Sauce

Fish Cake Recipes

We love these little bundles of goodness, these fish cake recipes are very easy to make. You can, of course, use fresh salmon that has been poached, but for convenience and a great way to use store cupboard goodies, you can use most tinned fish, but try to remove as many bones as possible and any skin that is in the tin. Do not mash up too finely, the texture of the fish cake is better if the fish is slightly ‘chunky’.

Homemade Tartare Sauce


  • 6 heaped tablespoons of mayonnaise
  • 2 heaped tbsp of chopped gherkins, or finely chopped dill pickles
  • 1 dsp of capers, chopped
  • Good squeeze of lemon juice
  • 1 dsp of fresh chopped parsley
  • Pepper to taste


  1. Just mix all the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl at any point – it’s not rocket science!
  2. You can vary up and down the quantities, depending on how acidic or not you want the taste to be.
  3. Any leftover tartare sauce can sit in a closed container in the fridge for up to a week.

Fish Cake Recipe – Salmon Patties

Fish Cake – Salmon Patty Tips

  • For the adults, mix some sweet chilli sauce in with the patties, gives them a slight kick, or crush some lemongrass and mix in for a Thai flavoured dish.
  • Make extra – wrap in cling film and freeze for another day (uncooked). Or make smaller ones and freeze in an airtight container to serve with drinks if you are entertaining.
  • These patties can be made with tuna or cod as well.
  • Serves: 6 (1 large patty or 2 smaller ones per person)
  • Preparation Time: 20 mins
  • Cooking Time: 10 mins


  • 450 g can red salmon or fish of choice
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 225 g potatoes, mashed
  • 1/4 cup of finely chopped parsley
  • 170 g can sweetcorn, drained
  • A little pepper for seasoning
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 85 g unsalted butter
  • 2 tbs oil
  • A little flour for dusting work surface


  1. Drain the liquid from the salmon and remove any bones and any black skin that may have sneaked in. Break into small pieces, but do not mash, as the texture is better with pieces of salmon.
  2. Add the mashed potatoes, salmon, parsley, onions and sweetcorn into a bowl and mix thoroughly. Add the beaten eggs, half at a time, to ensure the mixture is not too wet. Season with pepper and a little salt if required.
  3. Dust your work surface with a little flour, and shape the mixture into patties with your hands according to the size you want, and coat them with the flour, as sparingly as possible.
  4. Melt the butter and olive oil in a frying pan and cook the salmon patties on each side for approximately 4 minutes, or until golden brown. You will need to do this in two batches.
  5. Remove the patties from the pan and drain on kitchen paper to remove any excess oil.
  6. Serve with a little mixed salad and home made tartare sauce and wedges of lemon.
