I’ve always L.O.V.E.D. crab cakes, but crab is just so darn expensive. Salmon cakes make a great alternative! Above is a shot of the “pre-cooked” cakes & below is a shot of the completed ones 🙂
Salmon Cakes Ingredients
- 1 package salmon, chicken of the sea brand, vacuum packed
- 3/4 c. bread crumbs (I’ve used both seasoned & unseasoned), divided
- 1/4 c. parmesan cheese, divided
- 1 tbsp pimento
- 1 tbsp capers
- 3 green onions, chopped
- 1 egg white
- 1/3 c. lowfat mayo
- low fat mayo
- grey poupon
Take about 1/4 c. of the bread crumbs and 1/8 c. of the parm cheese. Combine & set aside on a small plate.
In a large bowl combine the rest of the salmon cake ingredients. Shape into 4 portions (if you’re serving as a meal). This will yield 2 servings (2 cakes per person). You could also make them smaller if you’re going to use them as appetizers!
Flatten each portion between your hands & press both sides into the bread crumb/parm mixture. Put in a nonstick skillet over medium heat for about 6-8 minutes. Turning once in the middle of the cooking time.
Mix up sauce ingredients at a 1:1 ratio (or however you’d like!) Serve warm.
I wish I had more to say today~ unfortunately I’ve got 60 6-7 page papers to grade! Time to get at it!! Have a great weekend.
