3 Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large frying pan and fry the leek and beans for 5 minutes
until tender. Stir them into the carrot and potato mash, then add the cooked salmon and the parsley to the mixture and stir again.

4 Using your hands, mould the mixture into 2 large fishcakes and 2 smaller fishcakes.

(Fishy shapes look great.)
