Then the potatoes get mashed, making these fish cakes ultra soft. We thinly sliced kohlrabies, a turnip-like vegetable belonging to the cabbage family, for a refreshing side. It’s mild and slightly sweet and also rich in vitamin C and B, a nutritious veggie for these cooler months. Cook, relax and enjoy!

What you'll need: 12 oz Yukon Gold potatoes 8 oz salmon 1 lemon fresh parsley sprigs 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard 12 oz kohlrabi 2 oz shallot coarse salt all-purpose flour 1 large egg olive oil

Recipe steps: 1. Cook potatoes Peel potatoes and cut into 1-inch chunks. Place in a large pot and cover with cold water by 1-inch. Season with salt and bring to a boil.

  1. Cook salmon When water is boiling, rub salmon with 1 teaspoon oil and season with ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper. Place in a sieve or a colander and put on top of pot that has potatoes in it (make sure bottom does not touch water). Cover pot with a lid or foil and let steam for 10 minutes.

  2. Mash together Transfer salmon to a plate and drain potatoes when fork tender into the colander. Return potatoes to pot and stir over medium-high heat to dry out, about 1 minute. Mash roughly and season with 1 teaspoon salt. Sprinkle 1½ tablespoons flour into potatoes. Flake salmon apart with a fork and stir into potatoes.

  3. Form patties Zest lemon. Remove parsley leaves from stems and chop ¾ of them. Stir parsley, lemon zest, and 1 beaten egg into potato mixture. Mix until well combined. Form mixture into 4 patties and dust patties with flour. Chill in refrigerator while you prep the salad.
