    Salmon Patties

    2 - 5.6 oz (160 g) tins wild salmon
    1/2 cup (125 ml) rolled oats

    Juice of 1/2 lemon

    Potatoes: On stovetop steam sweet potatoes until very tender. In large bowl mash potatoes with fork or potato masher along with butter, maple syrup, cumin, ginger, salt and pepper.

    Mushrooms: Melt butter in pan over medium heat; add sliced mushrooms and sauté for 5 minutes, stirring regularly. Stir in red wine and cook for another 10 minutes or until most of the wine has evaporated. Season with salt, if desired.

    Salmon Patties: In large bowl flake tinned salmon with a fork. Mix in oats, egg, capsicum, shallot, curry powder, lemon juice and black pepper. Form into 4 equal-sized patties.
