Yes, smoked fish is expensive, but you'll find that a little goes a long way in this luxurious supper dish for two, so go on - why not treat yourself?
This is a wonderful way to cook salmon: easy and quick, giving a golden crusted outside whilst staying beautifully moist within. The lentil salsa is best made a few hours ahead to give all the flavours a chance to develop.
The thing to remember here is that good-quality tinned salmon makes better fishcakes than fresh, so don't be tempted to cook some salmon just for this.
You can make these with any fish for a summery starter, lunch or main course on a warm day. Serve them with Toasted Sweetcorn Salsa and a large glass of chilled wine!
These lovely, light creams are best made in early summer when sorrel is in season - or grown your own if you prefer. Sorrel adds a lemony lightness to recipes and goes really well with salmon but if you can't find it, use spinach instead.
