Mini Potato Cakes with Flaked Salmon

These make the most delicious canapés for all your entertaining. I quite often find smoked salmon canapés are made using cream cheese which I find too rich. These delicate flakes of moist hot smoked salmon on fluffy potato cakes with a little crème fraîche make a lovely change.
