Similar to my Crab Cake recipe, which i figured out quickly you can make a cake out of virtually anything. I'll spare my husband anymore of these for the next month, but it was fun! Making Cakes out of any fish is perfect when you have fish left over.
What you will Need:
1lb of Salmon cooked and broken apart
1table spoon of mayo
1 piece of whole wheat bread broken apart
1 small onion slivered or chopped
1 table spoon Soy Sauce (low sodium)
1 minced garlic clove
1 beaten egg
Bread crumbs for dipping once the cake is created, right before it hits the frying pan
Let's get cooking:
In a frying pan, using spray olive oil or line the pan with olive oil, depends on how important calories and fat are to you. You'll get a crisper top and bottom using olive oil that lines the pan, rather than the spray. Form the salmon mixture into small patty's like burgers. coat in bread crumbs, and once your pan is hot place the cakes in the pan. Once they are brown on the bottom you can flip them over to brown the other side (about 5 minutes. Your best bet is to fry these on a Med flame.
If you choose to bake these, since the salmon is already cooked, you can just put these in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, or stick them under the broiler on high 5 minutes for each side.
Pat your cakes dry of any excess oil, and place over a lovely bed of arugala or fresh greens, whatever you desire. A delicious balsamic/oil selection as your dressing, terryaki or a sesame dressing blend would taste great with this dish.
