Prep Time: 20 Minutes

Cook Time: 10-15 Minutes

Serves: 2

Can be kept chilled for up to 3 days.

 

INGREDIENTS 

16oz Salmon (2 pieces)

100g North Atlantic Prawns

2 Spring Onions

1 Lemon (cut in half)

1 Lemon (zested & juiced)

Handful of Mashed Potato

Flour, Eggs, Milk & Breadcrumb (for the coating)

Small amount of butter

Bay & Herbs

Salt & Pepper, to season

 

METHOD

Poach your salmon in water, covering with your choice of herbs - dill, parsley or coriander, 2 half lemons and a couple of bay leaves. Cover and turn up the heat - but don’t boil.

The salmon will take approx. 12-15 minutes and change colour from a vibrant pink to a dull pink throughout. Once cooked, take the salmon from the liquid and leave to cool.

3 Strain the herbs and lemon from the left-over liquid and return this to the heat to reduce by half - this can then be used to add extra flavour to your fishcake.

4 Slice the spring onions fairly thin and fry off gently in butter until translucent.

Once the salmon is cool add it into a bowl with prawns, spring onions, juice & zest of lemon and mashed potato. Mix gently so that your salmon is flaky and the prawns stay whole. Then season to taste.

Mould your fishcake mix into small cricket ball sizes, or if for a starter go for golf ball size instead and leave to one side.

7 For the coating, whisk 2 eggs with equal parts milk until combined and place in a shallow container. Doing the same with the flour and breadcrumbs. Take your fishcakes and place them in the flour, then egg mix and finally breadcrumbs (called a Panne mix) ensuring even coverage, repeat if needed. Once done, place in the fridge.

When ready to cook deep fry the fishcakes in vegetable oil until golden brown and finish off in a medium oven to ensure piping hot throughout.

 

Serve with a crisp salad and either chips or new potatoes.

 

Tip: Place your fishcake mix into the fridge (Step 5) for easy moulding of the fishcakes.

Theres lots of bold colour in this years interiors! UK PhotoStyling: 2018 Furniture Show Report

Hi! It's Paula and Andrew here, photographer and stylist from PhotoStyling. We've just arrived back from three of the major European interior trade shows, Paris, Cologne, and Birmingham. On behalf of Arighi Bianchi, we're here to share a few of 2018 hottest interior trends soon to be gracing our homes!

This is not a shy year for colour! The three outstanding hues that stole the show at every fair we attended were Dusky Pink, Cornflower blue and Sage Green.

Take a look below to see how amazing they look on furniture and home accessories.

 

Dusky Pink

We saw this very feminine shade paired with metal, wood and black accessories, which has given us a completely new look. We just love it!

Cornflower Blue
Blue is still going strong and we especially saw this de-saturated pale blue shade everywhere in Cologne, Paris, and Birmingham. We are calling it cornflower blue! What would you call it?

Sage Green

2017 was a huge year for green shades and 2018 won't be any different. When matched with palm leaf accessories - another strong trend for 2018 -, it makes any home feel fresh, laid-back and exotic.

 

Mix them together!

The great thing about these three colours - dusky pink, sage green and cornflower blue - is that you can have no fear of mixing them together. Have some fun, take a look at the photos below for inspiration and go for it!
