Salmon patties

1.Place potato in a saucepan with enough cold water to cover; bring to the boil. Remove dill leaves from stalks; reserve dill leaves. Place stalks in a greased steamer or metal colander; place salmon on top. Place steamer over boiling potato; cover with a lid. Cook for 10 minutes or until salmon is cooked through and potato is tender. Remove steamer. Drain potato; return to pan and mash. Set aside to cool.
2.Flake salmon. Chop reserved dill leaves coarsely. Add flaked salmon, chopped dill, gherkins, capers, mustard, egg and 2 tablespoons of the flour to mashed potato; stir to combine. Season. Shape mixture into 12 patties; coat patties in remaining flour. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until cold.
3.Meanwhile, make lemon mayo.
4.Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large heavy-based frying pan over medium heat; cook patties, in batches, adding more oil between batches, for 3 minutes on each side or until golden.
5.Serve patties with lemon mayo and lemon wedges, scattered with extra dill.
