Mash the boiled potatoes with a fork or a potato masher.
Flake the poached salmon into bite-sized pieces.
Mix potatoes and salmon together.
Add the egg, herbs, spices, and mix until well combined.
Shape into patties. Make larger patties if eaten for lunch/dinner or smaller for appetizers.
Heat the oil in a pan until hot.
Pan fry on one side until crispy, about 7-8 minutes, flip and fry on another side until crispy and heated through, another 7-8 minutes.
Serve with a squeeze of lemon and some yogurt sauce or aioli.
I like covering the pan with a lid while they cook on their first side just so that they heat through faster. If you are using prepared mashed potatoes and they are too thin, add a bit of flour. Even if you are using plain boiled potatoes and you prefer firmer cakes, then add a bit of flour to thicken the mixture.If you don't have poached salmon, use equivalent amount of canned salmon.
