How to make the healthy salmon patties

1 Using a food processor, pulse the mushrooms until they are very finely chopped.

2 In a large saucepan sauté the mushrooms with a drizzle of olive oil until they have sweated off most of their water. Set aside to cool.

3 In a large bowl combine the rest of the ingredients along with the cooled mushrooms. Season well with salt and pepper. Separate into equally sized patties.

4 Pan fry patties using a little olive oil in a non-stick frying pan. Cook until golden brown on both sides.

5 Serve patties with wedges of lemon and a side salad or veg.
