  1. Step 1

    Combine the potato, apple and onion in a large bowl. Squeeze as much excess liquid from the mixture as possible. Discard the liquid. Stir the flour and allspice into the potato mixture. Season.

  2. Step 2

    Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat, then spoon three 1/3-cup portions of the mixture into the pan. Use a spatula to press each cake into a disc. Cook for 5 mins each side or until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel and cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining mixture.

  3. Step 3

    Divide potato cakes among serving plates. Top with sour cream, smoked salmon, dill, chives and rocket. Serve with lemon wedges.
