Salmon fish cake bake with homemade mayonnaise

What do you do when your fish cakes go wrong?  Reinvent them as a fish cake bake, that’s what!  We had planned on making fish cakes with some very nice Wild Alaskan salmon I’d got my mitts on, but the potato ended up too wet and there was a minor crisis over what to do.  I figured there’s not much difference to popping the fish cake mixture into a stoneware dish and baking it, rather than frying them in a pan.

So that’s what we did.  Mr Rigg was on fish cake duty, I was in charge of homemade mayonnaise (so so delicious!).  It turned out pretty nicely, with lovely crispy bits on top and plenty of rich mayonnaise to accompany it.  We tried making this again the other night – turns out, it’s not easy to recreate gone-wrong fish cakes.  Oh well.
