I have to be honest, fish is not a favourite with everyone in my house although me and my daughter love it. I don’t serve fish as much as I’d like to, it has been a slow journey getting my kids to enjoy it. Recently, I served these salmon patties as burgers as my kids love burgers.

You can make homemade breadcrumbs by toasting bread and then blitzing it. Place toasted bread in food processor and blitz until fine bread crumbs. 1 slice of toast makes about 1/2 cup breadcrumbs.

You can make these ahead of time to store in fridge and fry just before serving.

Your children may like them with tomato sauce.
