Salmon Cakes ~ EVEN better!

So I just realized I already have a Salmon Cakes post up here on the blog~ but these ones are so much better!!!

We had friends over a few weeks ago for lunch and I made a greek-inspired pasta salad… well, garden (and greek) AND Giada’s rockstar salmon cakes. Using saltines in the mix is JUST brilliant!! It adds something extra… bread crumbs pale in comparison 🙂

The best part is, these are super easy too!!! You just combine salmon (I used the vacuum sealed kind), chives, saltines, corn, dijon mustard, mayo, capers, lemon juice & zest. Then you form into patties, dredge in a few more saltines & pan fry in a bit of olive oil & butter. I served these up with Giada’s sauce (greek yogurt, lemon juice/zest, capers, s&p) as well as a side of honey mustard (mayo, dijon, & honey). They were sooooo good (and got rave reviews 🙂 Gotta love the food network!

Here’s the link to Giada’s recipe.
