  1. Place the grated squash, chopped salmon, egg and parsley in a bowl. Season with olive oil, lemon zest and juice to taste, and mix until the ingredients are well combined.
  2. Shape mixture into small rounds, approximately 3 cm wide and 1 cm deep to form little cakes. Chill in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  3. Dust each cake with the peppered flour, then fry over a low heat in a little oil for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until cooked and golden brown. Drain on kitchen paper.
  4. Serve the fish-cakes garnished with a little extra salmon and parsley, and with two handfuls of salad vegetables from the recommended list.
