(at time of publication)
- 700g new potatoes, halved
- 400g skinless salmon fillet
- 5cm piece ginger, grated
- zest and juice of 1 lime
- 3 teaspoons olive oil
- 3 spring onions, finely chopped
- 4 tablespoons low-fat plain yoghurt
- 4 tablespoons chipotle sauce
- 6 cups chopped spinach
- 2 cups watercress
- Fill a saucepan with lightly salted water and bring to the boil. Cook potatoes for 15 minutes or until tender.
- Meanwhile, in a food processor place salmon and process until finely chopped. Transfer to a large bowl and add ginger, lime zest and salt and pepper. Set to one side.
- In a non-stick pan, heat one teaspoon of oil over medium. Cook spring onions until softened and stir 3/4 into salmon mix. Set aside remaining 1/4.
- Drain potatoes and add one quarter to the fish mixture. Mash well then form 4 cakes. Keep remaining potatoes warm.
- In a non-stick pan, heat remaining oil over medium-high. Add fish cakes and cook for 3-4 minutes each side, until golden and cooked through. Cover pan and rest for a few minutes.
- In a small bowl, combine yoghurt, chipotle and lime juice. Remove cakes from the pan. Bring pan back to medium heat and add spinach and 2 tablespoons of water. Cook for 2-3 minutes until wilted.
- Serve fish cakes with spinach, remaining spring onions, watercress, potatoes and yoghurt sauce. Garnish with a lemon or lime wedge and fresh herbs if you like.
