hello & welcome from a bright & sunny(for a change)manchester!
can't see why not.defrost the salmon & dice for the fish cakes.not sure about the en croute.i mean whether to cook from frozen or not.i'd go for frozen,because a)you can buy frozen salmon en croute in the shops.b)if you defrost the cooked salmon then cook it en crout the fish will almost certainly be over cooked by the time the pastry is cooked.only thing to watch is that the pastry may get soft/flabby as the salmon inside defrosts during the cooking period.
as i said,not sure on the encroute but you've come to the right place nan...someone on here will have the answer!!
