2 strips rasher bacon, cooked until crispy, crumbled, bacon fat reserved
60g chopped onion
1 egg
125ml mayonnaise
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp granulated sugar
1/2 lemon, zested
1 (425g) tin wild salmon, checked for large bones
1 baked or boiled potato, peeled, and fluffed with a fork
25g breadcrumbs
2 tbsp grated Parmesan
Freshly ground black pepper
6 tbsp vegetable oil
1) Heat 1 tbsp of the reserved bacon fat in a small saute pan over a low heat. Add the onions and cook until translucent. Cool the onions slightly.

2) Mix the bacon, onion, egg, mayonnaise, mustard, sugar and lemon zest in a bowl. Add the salmon and potato, mixing gently after each addition. Form the mixture into 12 small patties.

3) In a shallow dish, combine the breadcrumbs, Parmesan and pepper, to taste. Coat the patties in the breadcrumb topping.

4) Heat 3 tbsp of the oil in a large saute pan over a medium heat, and cook the salmon cakes in batches until golden, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Add more oil, as necessary. Arrange on a serving platter and serve.
