Method

Combine the fishcake ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Divide the mixture into six and shape the cakes using either your hands or an upturned sugar bowl. Place onto a tray lined with parchment paper. Chill in the fridge.

Place the flour, egg and breadcrumbs in three separate bowls. Remove the fish cakes from the fridge and dust in the flour, followed by the egg wash and finally the breadcrumbs. Fry in a medium pan, browning on all sides, for about 10 minutes until golden and crispy.

Put the mustard, white wine vinegar, olive oil and a pinch of salt into a clean jam jar and shake to emulsify.

Place the créme fraîche in a bowl, season with salt and add the lemon juice.

For the salad, tear the herbs into a bowl with the baby leaves and dress with the vinaigrette.

To serve place the fish cakes on a plate and stack the sliced smoked salmon on top, followed by the lemon créme fraîche and the dressed herb salad.
