Course Appetizer, Side Dish


  • 500 g white button mushrooms
  • 1 400g tin cannellini beans drained and rinsed
  • 2 170g tins salmon drained
  • 2 XL free-range eggs lightly beaten

  • Using a food processor, pulse the mushrooms until they are very finely chopped.
  • In a large saucepan saute the mushrooms with a drizzle of olive oil until they have sweated off most of their water. Set aside to cool.
  • In a large bowl combine the rest of the ingredients along with the cooled mushrooms.*
  • Season well with salt and pepper.
  • Separate into equally sized patties.
  • Pan fry patties using a little olive oil in a non-stick frying pan.
  • Cook until golden brown on both sides.
  • Serve patties with wedges of lemon and a side salad or vegetable.


*I like to lightly mash the cannellini beans to bring together the mixture nicely.
