70g salmon fillet
A squeeze of lemon juice
A knob of butter (or dairy-free alternative)
2 spring onions, chopped
1 tbsp chopped fresh dill

½ tbsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp flour
1 egg lightly beaten
50g breadcrumbs
Sunflower oil for frying
Salt and pepper (for babies over one year)


  1. Boil the potato in salted water for 25 to 30 minutes until tender when pierced with a knife. Drain, and when cool enough to handle, peel and mash.
  2. Cook the salmon in a microwave on high for 2 to 3 minutes with a squeeze of lemon juice and a knob of butter .
  3. Flake the fish onto a plate and leave to cool slightly. Mix the potato with the spring onions, dill & chilli sauce (if using), tomato ketchup, mayonnaise and salt and pepper (for babies over one).
  4. Fold in the flaked salmon being careful not to break up the fish too much.
  5. Take 1 ½ tbsp of the mixture and form into a ball. Repeat until you have used up all the mixture.

  7. Heat some sunflower oil in a non stick and saute the salmon footballs for 2 to 3 minutes.
